JAR HANDLES FROM WINE AMPHORAE with seal impressions in Greek (Roman Period, various sites in Israel). "Every man serves the good wine first, and when men have drunk freely, then that which is poorer; you have kept the good wine until now" (John 2:10). Imported wines came to Roman Palestine from all over the Mediterranean world. Large wine jars were often stamped with seals designating either their place of origin or their destination. The finest wines would likely have been in jars with seal impressions.
