Roman glass juglet, 200-400 A.D.

This small glass jar has a bulky body with a small neck with a mouth. It has a small green handle. This type of flask would be used to pour oils or perfumes. The period of time between the 3rd and 5th centuries is known as the end of Lower Imperial Rome, a time that corresponds to the mandate of Diocletian with which the decline of the Empire began. When Rome seems to have reached its peak, the Hellenistic tradition begins to decline. There is a deterioration of the institutions, a fall in the economy and constant attacks from the barbarian peoples, facts that will be reflected in the artistic panorama.
