    If it is possible I want to inventory information (measure, Provenance and date) about picture 10 and 11 (bowl with wavy glass band decoration -color light brown).

      Bowl with scallopped rim is probably 4th century AD. from the old city of Karanis in Egypt. The one in the Louvre is from Arveiller-Dulong 2005. The Louvre number is #1270
