A fine Roman North African redware jug featuring an ovoid body moulded into an androgynous head. Below is a wide neck acting as the base of the vessel. The facial features have been rendered stylistically including the large, almond shaped eyes and pointed nose. The hair frames the face and follows around the body of the jug. Different incised markings in different directions create the flow of the hairstyle. The sides of the body taper in towards the cylindrical neck leading to a thick, oval rim decorated by three horizontal ridges. A handle has been attached at the back from the neck to the shoulder. Earthly encrustation is visible to the surface.
Date: 2nd-3rd century AD
