Such jugs were produced for the transport and storage of liquids early on. Vessels as such would have had thick walls and strong handles.

The jug has a cylindrical body and an applied handle. The rim is out-splayed and the lip rounded. The neck is cylindrical with a tapering at the top. The strap handle is applied on the bottle.

Jugs of this type were found around the eastern and western Roman Empire.
