Pilgrim ampoule in purified ceramic decorated with a matrix. On one face there is a depiction of a character with a veiled head and a bandaged child riding a mule (flight to Egypt), on the other there is a blessing character on horseback (Christ's entrance to Jerusalem). The specimen is part of a group of ampoules produced in the near-eastern area by the same shop, preserved in the museum of Antioch, which present various representations and cannot be related to a specific sanctuary. They probably constituted a generic reminder of pilgrimages, perhaps to Jerusalem.
