Roman ceramic jug

Roman ceramic jug

A trilobulated mouth jug (with three parts attached) of Roman common pottery, ocher colored with black spots on the outside, and with wheel signs on the inside; the pasta is ocher and contains degrasante. Although incomplete, the preserved fragments of this medium-sized jar make it possible to perfectly identify its shape (the so-called Vegas 46), with its characteristic three-lobed mouth and a single handle. It is a vessel for table service rather than cooking, although this specimen retains some remains of soot on the outside.
