The precise date of this object cannot be determiend on form alone, but most of the examples with firm archaeological contexts date to the LCIIC or LCIII periods, mainly the latter (Collard 2008, 148-50; see Fourrier and Kiely 2012, 298 and note 121 (both with refs)), though one found in a tomb during the Hake-Kitchener excavations at Kourion (BM GR 2010,5001.1) possibly dates as late as the Cypro-Geometric period.
