Vessels such as this one were produced in
second half of the first century AD, slightly
the appearance of the classic Sidonian
This flask has an everted rim, a cylindrical
and an ovoid body resting on a flat base. Two
handles are drawn upward from the shoulder
attached with a fold just under the rim.
The decoration on the body is divided into
horizontal bands: the top and bottom bands
consist of vertical ribbings, and the middle
consists of interlacing scrolls.
Such vessels were carelessly executed and
produced for a mass market.
