A Roman free-blown cylindrical bottle in pale green glass. The vessel has a short neck leading to a wide everted rim. A single small extends from just below the rim to the shoulders. The bottle stands on a flat base which is slighly everted in the centre. In wonderful condition and really quite scarce.
At the height of its popularity in Rome, glass was present in nearly every aspect of daily life. It was a particularly favoured container for precious, valuable liquids, such as expensive oils, perfumes, and medicines which were produced from all corners of the Roman empire.
Circa 3rd-4th century AD.
