Roman galss beaker of colourless faint yellowish tinge. The fragments found were part of its rim, body and the base. It has been restored from sherds of which about 40% were complete but in need of with much gap-filling. This Roman beaker has been free-blown blank with horizontal cutting, facet-cutting and ground and polished. It also has an everted, rounded rim, two zones of facet-cutting with two interlocking rows of tear-drop facets, forming a honeycomb effect on its upper part and a single row of tear drops on its lower body. Each zone is bordered top and bottom by a prominent rib, formed by deep horizontal cutting above and below.
