Bottle with Spectacle Decoration

This is a Roman flask of colorless glass.  It has a spherical body with a pushed-in bottom, a tubular neck constricted slightly at the base, and a rounded rim.  Fine trails of aquamarine glass were wound around the neck and body, then crimped into a festoon pattern.  This spectacle decoration was popular during the late Roman & Byzantine periods.
