Transparent bluish glass amphora with rim rolled inward, short slightly flaring funnel mouth, tall neck, horizontal shoulder elongated inverted conical body tapering to a rounded base. Two rounded coil handles each applied to shoulder and attached to the neck, excess glass drawn out thin and folded back along the top of the handle. On the exterior thin cream coloured and silver weathering crust, incipient pitting.This typology of vessel was apparently very popular in the late Roman period in the Eastern Mediterranean regions for serving wine at the table. The clear colourless glass would have provided the best 'showcase' for a sumptuous libation.For a comparable example see; M.
