Roman prismatic rectangular bottle of natural green-blue colour. This bottle is made of thick glass with a very thick 'pushed up' base showing a clear pontil mark. It was found with little weathering and complete with rim, neck, two handles, body and base. It was broken and later glued at the neck, one small sherd is missing. This is an example of a less common, two-handled rectangular version of the prismatic bottle. This bottle was found at Southwark, London.
50 AD - 150 AD
