This glass container was a vessel for containing the ashes of a cremated body. Like many ancient peoples, the Romans believed in an afterlife that would be an idealised form of their worldly experience. For Christians and others, it was a family obligation to ensure that the grave of every deceased relative was furnished according to its means.
