Possessed of a graceful, timeless beauty that still delights our senses, this deep red vessel perhaps contained water or wine during the Golden Age of Rome. When we hold it today, we are aware of the touch of ancient hands: shaping it, selling it in some bustling marketplace, pouring out its contents. In its presence, those ancient citizens of the Roman Empire--otherwise forgotten--come briefly alive. We feel the energy of their lives and we become part of the unbroken chain of history. - (P.1038)
