- OR -

A Romano Egyptian 'Cotton Reel' unguentarium in thick cast mottled teal-coloured glass. The flask has a wide everted flat rim, with a relatively tall neck and stands on a flat base.

The shape of this unguentarium seems to be characteristic of Roman Egypt, the thick walls creating a durable container with a very small capacity.

For similar: cf. Item 50.1836:  Ancient Glass at the Newark Museum (USA).

Very Fine condition with areas of light iridescence; minor accretions inside and out.

Circa 1st century AD.
