(47R) Date: 3rd-4th Century AD,  H: 11.5 cm

Remarks: This is a sprinkler flask where the narrowed opening of the base of the neck enables oil or perfume to be poured out drop by drop. The bowl is decorated with fins and base with toe projections. The piece is intact and is made of light yellow green glass. This type of flask, probably made in Syria, has been found much further to the east as well as in the cities of the Black Sea region.
