A glass beaker, thick-walled, decorated with three rows of polished ovals and two shallow horizontal grooves under a rim. It was made of transparent light green glass. The beaker corresponds to vessels classified into type E230 (known also as type Kowalki) of Eggers’s typology of Roman imports (series IA of Straume).

This type of glass beakers was manufactured in the Black Sea region. They were very popular in the territory of the Barbaricum between the Black Sea and the Baltic Sea.

Two inhumation graves (male and female) were discovered by accident in 1904. They were in stone boxes beneath earth mounds, which contained also dress accessories, ornaments, weapons and Roman imports. The grave goods from two burials got intermingled and could not be separated. Initially the glass beaker was in the female grave.
