About this title

Synopsis:

Pilgrim flasks decorated in relief form a category of ceramics that is still not well known today. Using imported models, they were produced in Egypt without interruption from the Hellenistic period through the Roman era up until the flasks of Saint Menas. This work will try to show whether the production of these objects did indeed develop without interruption throughout this long period and to define the reasons for which the form of these objects found particular favour as well as their function and value for their owners. With a view to defining the criteria that allow for the dating of these flasks and their placing within a cultural history, the ensemble of known pieces, both complete and fragmentary, have been brought together in this volume. They are presented in the catalogue according to typological and decorative criteria and dated thanks to a study of the decorative repertory of other categories of objects whose context of discovery is well known.
