Green glass dropper bottle, Roman, 100-500 CE

This bottle once contained expensive oils used for cleaning the body and for medical treatments. The neck of the bottle has a small hole so the oil only flows one drop at a time. The green glass was blown into a mould to get the shape and form the criss-cross pattern.
