The eastern oven is of two kinds --fixed and portable. The former is found only in towns, where regular bakers are employed. (Hosea 7:4 ) The latter ia adapted to the nomad state, it consists of a large jar made of clay, about three feet high and widening toward the bottom, with a hole for the extraction of the ashes. Each household possessed such an article, (Exodus 8:3 ) and it was only in times of extreme dearth that the same oven sufficed for several families. (Leviticus 26:26 ) It was heated with dry twigs and grass, (Matthew 6:30 ) and the loaves were placed both inside and outside of it.
