Unguentaria are small ceramic bottles, usually without handles. In the Hellenistic period (323-30 BC) they were commonly produced in the whole Mediterranean Basin. Hellenistic unguentaria occur in various local types, as each geographical region produced forms typical for itself. This article presents one specific type of these vessels – domedmouth unguentaria. For the first time the domed mouth unguentaria were distinguished as a separate category by John W. Hayes during his work on the pottery from the House of Dionysos in Nea Paphos, Cyprus.
