During the Late Bronze Age, the trade contacts established with Cyprus in the preceding period were intensified. This type of bull was very popular in the Levant, either as ornaments or perhaps as feeding bottles. Base ring ware. LBI-II, 1550-1200 BCE. From Gezer, modern-day Israel. (The British Museum, London).
