Remarks: Karanis (1st BC to 5th C) was mainly a agricultural town which expanded in prosperity after Augustus conquered Egypt in the 1st century and well into the 2nd century. The archaeological site of Karanis was active from 1924 to 1935.  The following pictures below shows details of this magnificent collection in Gallery 138. Most of this glass was manufactured during the 3rd-4th centuries.  Additional glass at METROPOLITAN MUSEUM OF ART (NEW YORK).
