Roman bronze situla, 1st-3rd century A.D.

A situla is a bowl or glass with a handle, such as a small cauldron where liquids can be carried as an offering. The most commonly used form is for holy water, although it can also be used with water or milk as an offering. It is usually made of metal, as these are more resistant and its handle has better mobility. In addition, it is kept with the element with which the liquid was taken out of it called hyssop.
