This was probably the most popular type of Egyptian glass vessel. The milky white to sea green-colored fabric and monochrome decorative scheme are reminiscent of Egyptian alabaster. That the Egyptians would make an association between glass and stone is only natural, as the Egyptian name for glass was inr n(y) wdh or "the flowing stone."
