This is a very small amphora of rock crystal, made in Roman Italy, in the 1st century. The amphora is almost exactly parallelled by examples i.a. at Aquileia. Amphoras are ancient Greek and Roman storage vessels of many variations usually having a large oval body with a narrow neck and two or more handles extending from the mouth or neck to the shoulders on the body.
