SMALL STRAP HANDLED ROMAN GLASS JUG

Remarks: Squat cylindrical bottle of clean light blue glass is free blown with horizontally flanged rim.  The broad handle is combed, bent at a right angle has five sharp ribs applied to the shoulder. There are five wheel-cut incisions around the body. No pontil mark.  The smaller size of this example makes it rarer than the more common larger jug of the same design.

 Condition: Intact and in excellent state of preservation.
