c.2nd/3rd Century A.D. A rare and very unusual Roman terracotta (Pilgrims?) Ampulla found many years back in Chichester, West Sussex and featuring inscribed ancient Graffito on one side consisting of what appears to be a pair of letters, the first "A" the second slightly indistinct. This nice little Ampulla is hand fashioned from a reddish terracotta in the form of a flattened, round bodied amphora with twin opposing handles from the rim to the shoulder (one handle now missing as excavated) and appears to be hollow. Possibly once used to contain some form of sacred water or unguent maybe and some form of Pilgrim souvenir or for votive deposition. Apart from handle missing, totally intact and in very good sound condition, a very unusual Roman items especially with the ancient Graffito, supplied in a display box, 54mm high x 39mm wide x 22mm thick.
