A Roman unguentarium in pale blue glass. The vessel has an everted rim and a long neck which leads to the conical body. The base is flat, slightly everted in the centre. Much of the vessel with a coating of earthy accretions.

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.
