Unguentarium

Description

Unguentarium of the "candlestick" type, with excessively compressed (disc-shaped) body and narrow cylindrical neck with splaying rim. Such vessels were mainly used as containers for perfumed oils. Because of their shape, they could store only small quantities of the liquid. The elongated neck helped to control the flow of the precious substances and prevented vaporization.
