An exceptional Ancient Roman bronze lidded aryballosos featuring a baluster-shaped body with short neck and collar rim. The vessel stands on a slightly spayed tubular foot; underneath, a concave base is decorated by concentric rings and a central knob. Two twin handles with palmette finials rise from the shoulders and attach to the rim. A suspension loop features at the top of each handle with a linked chain raising to two central attachment rings. A third suspension chain is attached to the same rings and holds the lid, decorated with circular grooves and raised bands. Green, blue and brown patination remains on the surface. A few minor dents to the body.
