A wonderful ribbed glass bowl from Roman times. Dated to late 1st BCE – early 1st century CE. The object has a diameter of 13 cm.
As the “Metropolitan Museum of Art” indicates, the colors of the object are: transparent, dark purple and opaque white. This type of dish – ribbed – was popular on Roman tables. Made of the semi-precious agate mineral – hence the intriguing marks on the vessel.
IMPERIUM ROMANUM is in process of translation over 3300 Polish articles about history of ancient Rome. If you have the opportunity to financially support the further translations – even with smaller amount – I will be very grateful.
