Vessels such as this one were produced in the second half of the first century AD, slightly after the appearance of the classic Sidonian vessels.

This flask has an everted rim, a cylindrical neck and an ovoid body resting on a flat base. Two handles are drawn upward from the shoulder and attached with a fold just under the rim. The decoration on the body is divided into three horizontal bands: the top and bottom bands consist of vertical ribbings, and the middle band consists of interlacing scrolls.

Such vessels were carelessly executed and were produced for a mass market. - (GF.0042)
