The vessel features a short cylindrical neck, which opens out at the top to form a rounded flange with a funnel-shaped mouth. To the bottom, the neck expands into a bulbous body. The sides taper slightly before curving into a concave base.

Date: 1st – 3rd Century AD

Object Condition

Very good condition. Minor chips to the trail. Iridescence, earthy encrustations and weathering to the surface.
