A truly spectacular example of early Roman glass, being a sea-green bowl of shallow rounded form with a smooth edge and 28 exterior pronounced ribs converging at the bottom. A wheel cut triple band circles the lower flattened section of the bowl.

The diameter at the top rim is 6 1/8", and the height is 1 3/8". The condition of the bowl is superb, with no chips, cracks, or restoration and displaying a wonderful iridescence. I have shown a number of photos below in different lighting and angles, both from the top and from underneath. The first and sixth photos best show the color of the bowl.

NOTES: 1. Purchased from a London dealer in 1968 and kept in a private collection until the present time.

2. A very similar example, but with a crack, is in the Roman Antiquities section of the Louvre Museum, Paris.
