Ancient Roman Glass Millefiori Bowl
A Roman polychrome 'Millefiori dish' is pictured at the Museum of London Docklands, on April 29, 2009. The dish is made up of hundreds of indented glass petals (the term millefiori means simply "a thousand flowers") in an intricate repeated pattern and was found during excavations in Prescot Street, Aldgate in east London. The dish formed part of the grave goods of a Roman Londoner whose cremated remains were uncovered, probably buried in a wooden container, in a cemetery in east London.
