Flask with spout at the bottom
Gilan Province. 1st-3rd century. Height 18.4 cm. Private collection, Kyoto.
A vessel made of pale green glass. The entire surface is covered with efflorescence and petrified mud, making it difficult to recognize the moldpressed pattern. The spout at the bottom is adopted from the rhyton.
