These jar forms were often used in the western provinces of the Roman Empire. In many cases the glass jars were reused as a vessel for cremation. In context with settlement they were used as storage vessels and tableware. These jars were freely blown. Glass jars originally came from the upper-Italian region, but with growing demand they were also manufactured in the provinces.
