The situla was a ritual vessel for offering holy Nile water. The top register displays two pairs of monkeys between two solar boats, referring to the god Thot in the Underworld. The middle, tallest register displays the dedicant making an offering with papyrus stalk and altar before ithyphallic Amen-re-c, Isis, Osiris, Nephthys, Ptah, Sekhmet and Nefertem. The next register displays sacred barks and the figure of a jackal. The bottom register displays a large lotus flower, referring to the birth of the universe.

The flang which was formed by pinching a fold of glass along the side of the cup must be purely decorative since the slop of the rim would prevent it from holding a lid.
AM32574. Patella cup; cf. Wolkenburg Collection, Christie's London, 9 July 1991, 96, Choice, probably Flavian period; reverse 3.8 cm (1 1/2") x 6.3 cm (2 1/2"), free-blown, thin opaque white glass, wide flanged rim, cream color patination, very attractive!; SOLD

From the collection of Alex G. Malloy, former dealer in antiquities for 40 years. Ex Alex G. Malloy Catalogue summer 1977, No. 50

Similar jugs, including Benzian Collection 81, are identified as possibly from the Ennion Workshop. Ennion was one of the first glassmakers to use a two-piece mold and the first glassmaker to sign glass objects that have survived until modern times. Our piece, very similar to Benzian 81, either came from the Ennion workshop or, perhaps more likely, was closely copied from his work.

Benzian Collection 81 (very similar but all pale glass); Corning II 510 (different mold but with blue handle), Choice, reconstructed, 8.9 cm (3 1/2"), mold-blown clear yellow, blue loop handle, frieze of grape leaves around the shoulder, cylindrical body divided into rectangular niches, radial design on shoulder and base, extensive silver and rainbow iridescence; SOLD
