Clay depas amphikypellon from Troy.

The name of the shape is a Homeric term from Iliad and is conventionally attributed to the cups with a funnel-shaped body and two vertical, amply curved handles. The shape was common in the NE Aegean during the Early Bronze Age. It has a wide distribution throughout the Aegean world, Caria and Lycia. Their use remains unknown.
