Object Description

A finely potted Nabataean bright red terracotta juglet, featuring a ribbed decoration across the central body. The juglet consists of a short, circular foot leading to a wide, globular body and a cylindrical neck with an inverted rim. A single applied handle extends from the rim to the vessel’s shoulder. The bright orange colour of the terracotta, as seen on this fine example, is a characteristic of Nabataean pottery and it is caused by the high level of iron in the clay. This terracotta was probably produced soon after the conquest of the region by the Romans and used in a private context. Some earthly encrustation covers the surface.

Date: Circa 1st Century AD
