SMALL SILVERY ROMAN BOTTLE

During the first and second centuries a large group of simple bottles developed from the early “tear drop” shape.  This example has a slender piriform body, short tubular neck with a slight neck constriction.  The silvery iridescence covering the entire piece adds to its simple beauty.

From Syria. H: 6 cm Rim D: 1.75 cm 1-2 century  Cf. APC # T247
