This incense cup forms part of the funerary assemblage from a Phoenician rock cut tomb in Rabat, Malta which dates to the 7th century BC. Like most local Phoenician pottery it is very plain, with the only decoration being a red slip covering. Polishing the slip before firing gave the surface a red sheen, possibly done to imitate the sheen more expensive bronze vessels had. This type of pottery vessel, the incense cup, was usually used during special occasions such as funerary rituals.
