Large Ancient Roman Shipwreck Salvaged Amphora - 100 AD

A large and beautifully encrusted ancient Roman transport amphora, sea salvaged and dating to the 1st-2nd century AD.

Salvaged from the depths of the Mediterranean, this large vessel was lost in some ancient shipwreck. Once filled with the produce of the Classical world, it has been transformed into a magnificent marine sculpture. 

In classification, this amphora seems to conform to Peacock and Williams group 66; its origin of manufacture may be northern Palestine or Lebanon and it may once have contained wine.

A very decorative piece.
