It is a large bottle made of greenish brown glass. It has a long conical body with serrated decoration and a long, thin neck ending in a flared edge.

It is really a piece with a magnificent typology and style, one of the best examples of Roman glass development. A product with an undeniable appeal, destined for the wealthiest and most select families of Ancient Rome.
