The term ‘Amlash Culture’, has generally been used to designate material cultures excavated at Gilan, an archaeological site on the southern shore of the Caspian sea, and refers to a group of Iron Age pottery and metal executions with a strong visual character. Amlash terracotta vessels , such as this fine example, might have been inspired by paralleled metal wares of the same period, and were used in either funeral libation contexts or ritual occasions.
