Roman stone alabaster cosmestic jar, 100-300 A.D.

Alabaster was used for containers of ointments or perfumes because it had a reputation for preventing them from spoiling more than any other material. Perfume containers kept in Rome the names they had in Greece. One of the most commonly used was alabaster, whose original form came from Egypt, where the material was precisely alabaster.
