History of Roman Glass
According to Archaeology.org, a publication of the Archaeological Institute of America, the peoples of the Roman Empire used more glass than any other ancient civilization. Glassblowing, which made large-scale glass production practicable, was discovered in the Syro-Palestinian region during the first century BCE, and by the first century CE glass vessels were commonplace throughout the empire. Glass vessels were used for serving food, drinking and washing hands between meal courses. Foods and condiments were stored in glass bottles and jars, glass bottles were used by mourners to pour libations and sprinkle perfumes on pyres, and the ashes of the deceased were sometimes collected in glass urns. Excavations in the Syro-Palestinian region show that late Roman glassmakers could make enough glass for tens of thousands of small- to medium-size vessels in a single operation.
