c. 2nd-3rd Century CE

Composed of a round body with a small nozzle on a ring base. An ovolo band decorates the shoulders with a linear band on the edge of the discus. The discus was broken before use in antiquity for reasons of religious purity so the discus decoration, if any, can not be ascertained. Finished with a red slip.

In very good and original condition with natural patina present.

8.5 x 7 cm (3.34 x 2.75 inches)

Worldwide Shipping and Certificate of Authenticity Included in Price.

Export Approval from the Israel Antiquities Authority.
