Juglet, blown glass; it has the shape
of a down-turned pear, with a collar on its upper
part, a tall opening neck with an angular handle.
Egypt or Eastern Mediterranean, most likely
Roman, 2nd – 4th century.
Ht. 8cm; Top diam. 1.7cm.
Comparative material: there are a few similar
Roman examples published by Israeli, but they are
without handles, cf. Israeli, nos.104-108, p.116-
117. A similarly shaped, decorated later period
juglet is in the Nasser D. Khalili collection, cf.
Goldstein, no.67, pp.72-73, attributed to Syria.
