Roman bottle from a Kentish burial


Roman bottle from a Kentish burial

£10.00

One of the smallest bottles found, from a child's grave. It was part of a display at the Museum of London - Dockland's exhibit 'Roman Dead'. Absolutely miniscule, the bottle is approximately 18mm high.

 Was it part of a Roman version of a teaset? Was it to hold tears? Or was it for perfume? 

It is difficult to give a feeling of the actual size of this precious little thing, but five of them grouped around a 5 pence coin should help.
