Roman wine storage ceramic amphora, 100 A.D.

This type of amphora was very stable from a typological point of view. This specimen is almost complete, as it lacks a rim, which is usually rectangular in section, and a neck that was bitroconical and of reduced dimensions; straight and short handles with rounded elbow, ovoid body, that is to say, wider in the upper half than the lower, cylindrical base very little developed in height and solid. Roman amphorae are containers used for storing and transporting food such as wine or olive oil.
