Roman, Syro-Palestinian (Samaria?), Snake-ThreadFlask, Late 2nd - Early 4th Century A.D.
Snake-threadornamentation originated in the eastern provinces of the Roman Empire in the second half of the second century and its popularity peaked in the first half of the third century. Snake-thread decoration was revived in the second half of the fourth century in the east and in the west near Cologne in modern Germany. Serpentine form trails may vary in thickness, may be the same color as the vessel (usually colorless) or brightly colored (common in the West). Ontario Museum 309, with similar subtle snake-threadornamentation, is attributed to Samaria, 3rd to early 4th century A.D.AG63814. Snake threadflask, cf.

Roman, Syro-Palestinian, FusiformUnguentarium with Iridescence, c. 3rd - 5th Century A.D.
Hayes' Ontario Museum catalog references many similar specimens, noting some are from Beirut. Our example is finer than most examples of similar form, many of which appear to be carelessly made. Hayes' dates the type 5th century or later. Perhaps the finer form indicates ours is earlier.AG63806. Fusiformunguentarium, cf.
