Internal-Handled Bowls – Puzzling pots from Bronze Age Mesopotamia
Taken from Parcours d’Orient: Recueil de textes offert à Christine Kepinski by Ulrike Bürger & Peter A. Miglus. Pages 21-34.

Recent excavations at Bakr Awa in Iraqi Kurdistan yielded a peculiar type of pottery vessel with inward bent handles. The authors’ curiosity was aroused and lead to an intensive literature research for comparisons. The surprising result was a catalogue of at least sixty specimens from all over southern and eastern Mesopotamia, including several variants as well as miniature vessels. Furthermore, it became apparent that this type had been in use for quite a long time, from the Early Dynastic to the Isin-Larsa Period. A wide range of interpretations for their function can be found in the literature, but the most convincing one is that as an enhanced pot stand.
