A Roman unguentarium in pale turquoise glass. The vessel has an everted rim and a relatively long neck which leads to the globular body. The base with pontil mark. 

Such unguentaria are small ceramic or glass bottle found frequently at Hellenistic and Roman sites, especially in cemeteries. Its most common use was probably as a container for the cosmetic oils and unguents which were gathered from all corners of the extensive Roman empire.

Very fine condition, complete and intact; a small stress crack (stable) on the base; light scratches to surfaces and an area of irregularity to rim.   

Circa 3rd-4th century AD.
