  • Dim: H: 124mm; diam: 29 mm; 53 mm & 35 mm

  • Amphoriskos or perfume jar, flared mouthpiece with the lip folded inwards and decorated with an opaque white glass. Cylindrical collar. Elongated belly. Recessed bottom overflowing, forming a foot. Angle handles with two white opaque ribs from the shoulder to the mouth.
  • They are amphoriskoï in fine glass with a high cylindrical neck and semicircular loops often of different color than the body, a production that forms a homogeneous corpus of oriental origin, produced during the first century of our era. These amphoriskoi are found in Cyprus, Syria-Palestine and even outside the Empire in Mesopotamia. The amphoriskos of the Louvre and that of our collection are comparable: an identical material of opaque blue and white glass, a typology of form typical of this region and this period, dimensions almost similar
