Description
Having survived ages of time, this delicate olive- green glass amphoriskos maintains the intricate Hellenistic beauty that captivates our eyes. The vessel is core-formed in an elegant shape of a tapering body. It is intricately decorated with an opaque white trailing, which is combed into a festoon pattern, having horizontal lines above and below. Its pale grey twin handles are attached to the shoulder and neck of the dark green body creating a beautiful contrast. What kind of rare aromatic potion could this delicate glass amphoriskos have contained so long ago? In whose gentle hands could it have been treasured? Though we do not know the answers to such questions, we do know that such a beautiful amphoriskos was lovingly made and cared for. We can be certain that its beauty and history will be valued for ages to come. - (GF.0335)
