Title:   Bowl Fragments
Category:   Glass
Description:   Fragments of at least three bowls of clear glass with small out-turned rims are included here, also various decorative elements, including a blown glass bird attached to a wall fragment, and with the details of the feathers given by cutting.
Also preserved are some small fragments of cage work with attachments to a bowl wall. The bird and the cage work appear to have been deep blue; the wall to which they are attached, a thin clear glass.
"It is not clear how many of these fragments belong to the same piece, and it seems advisable not to number them separately until they have been studied"(LT).
R. Smith, 1 August 1958, compares the bird with those of the marine-life bowls, the cage work with that on "diatreta", or on an amphora in Naples in which cage work and the cameo glass technique are combined.
EM. Stern, June 2001: Three smooth-walled bowls have been numbered G 547 h-1,2, G 547 i-1,2,3 and G 547 j. There are several unnumbered smooth sherds (15) belonging to bowls of this type, (possibly more than three), but they can' t be assigned to any particular object. Fragment G 547 i-2 joins to i-3. Fragment G 547 j is probably from a third bowl.
Fragment g: coil handle, which does not belong to diatrete vessel.
Fragment f: wall in base of a strut.
Cf. G 675.
j) cf. Agora XXXIV, no. 179.
