Late Bronze Age artefacts are now being placed in a broader spectrum of investigation about contacts, exchange and international trade and diplomacy 5. During the Badarian period late 5 th - early 4 th millennium B. The most important tombs contain the first Egyptian stone vases, but also the first zoomorphic ivory vases 8.
The first use of metal in the manufacture of vessels took place during Nagada II B. Tombs and cultic contexts of the following Dynasty I B. The major innovation of the Old Kingdom B. It allowed the production of powerful tools for drilling and shaping stone vases, and soon, artisans also created vases entirely in metal. Thus appeared the first imitations of metal vases in other materials, including ceramics of high quality, commonly known as Meidum ware This phenomenon of imitation, already observed in earlier times between ceramic forms and stone vessels, is one of the keys to the typological study of luxury tableware in Ancient Egypt.
Metal and stone were the two materials of choice for luxury vessels. Unfortunately, the recyclability of the former usually prevented its preservation. Thus the typological study of luxury vases necessarily relies on stone vases forms. During the New Kingdom B. We can recognize the same forms on wall-paintings and reliefs in tombs and temples, among the gifts presented to the king or the gods, or brought by merchants Fig. Some of them are of well-known origin.

Other forms are more difficult to trace. Such is the case for the horizontal loop-handled amphora and the flask. Table of new forms of Egyptian luxury vases in the New Kingdom. Canaanite merchants represented in the tomb of Kenamun TT Grimal and Menu Holthoer The last ones come from Memphis and date to the XX th dynasty The stone amphorae are usually big, but a miniaturized form was adapted for glass. This type is often called an amphoriskon We also find rare examples in faience The type evolved during the Late Bronze, becoming less globular and with a broader neck and smaller handles The stone amphora is also well known in the Levant, south and north The glass type has rarely been found in the Near East, but two examples are known from the Aegean: in Rhodes and Kalyvia Attica There also is a Levantine stone type, called lugged-flask or lugged-pyxis , on which the handles are very small One of them is a variant called a Ring flask , comprising a tubular body Faience 29 , glass 30 , or even ivory 31 examples have also been discovered in Egypt.
Furthermore, the flask is well known in the Levant and the Aegean in the entire range of materials Although the production of stone flasks seems to cease after the Late Bronze Age, the ceramic and faience industries maintained this form until the end of antiquity Metallic examples are rare, undoubtedly due to the recyclable nature of metal. It is worth noting that the only other metallic flask attested so far was found in the Uluburun wreck However, because examples in clay are more numerous, the ceramic corpus can help to indicate the geographical origins of the form.
A first direction in which to is towards the nearest neighbors in ancient Palestine and south Syria: the Canaanites, who seem to have introduced to Egypt many new practices and fashions during the Hyksos period 37 and in the following centuries. A familiar instance of such borrowings is the Canaanite jar As for the flask, small handles placed on either side of the neck are already visible on amphoriska produced in Canaan during EB I ca. The body of these vessels is round or oval and the bottom is flat. Their production was abandoned during the Middle Bronze Age, when Palestine potters began to create more jugs and jars, such as the Canaanite jar already evoked.
When the pilgrim flask appeared, at the end of MB or the beginning of LB I, it was already the type called pilgrim flask 43 , with a lentoid body not previously known in Canaan.
Thus, Tomb 57 at Ugarit MB III - LB I , contained a flask with a ring-shaped body 44 ; whereas a flask in the later Tomb 75 LB I was lentoid with three handles: two placed symmetrically on the shoulder, and the third on the more concave side of the vase, between the neck and the body Consequently, flasks with two symmetrical handles from neck to shoulder became widely distributed from Ugarit to Tell el-Ajjul It is thus logical to look farther north for the possible origin of these forms.
