physical_description
The shape of this circular container is similar to toilet boxes scientifically excavated in China. It is also possible that it was a wine vessel. Its interior is painted in coloured pigments, which would have rendered the wine undrinkable. If it was indeed a wine container then it was intended as a mortuary object, not for daily use.
