This globular short-neck jar with a funnel-mouth is a common 4th-5th Century shape. Many of the jars manufactured during this period have a variety of decorations such as pinched ribs, indentations and zig-zag trailing. Those having two or more handles were primarily found in the Eastern Mediterranean area. This jar with pale green handles on an aubergine body is a color combination seen frequently. Jar is intact.
