Picture by Tom Haartsen

A small Roman jug made from greenish glass. The handle has been attached to the shoulder of the flattened globular body with a kind of horseshoe shaped piece of glass. From there pulled up with a small hollow shaped band, approx. 1 cm wide, to the rim of the jug and attached with a elegant curl, a kind of thumb rest. The rim has been turned inward. The base is almost flat with a small indentation. The dimensions give this jug an elegant distinction.

Dimensions:, H: 7 cm.; largest ø 8,5 cm., ø rim 6 cm.; weight 80,7 gram.

Origin: Most probably Western Empire and from the Köln region.

Until now no parallels found.
