A semi-cylindrical container made of clay, with a raised relief of caricature figures. Such pieces were common during the Roman era in Egypt, due to the popularity of modern comedies written by the Greek poet and playwright Menander. There is a great number of oil lamps and small statues adorned with caricatures.
