A model of a glass boat from Salona was found in a woman’s or

possibly child’s grave 348 of Salona’s West Necropolis, in a layer

dated using the coins found there. Given the finds of coins, ollaform

balsamaria, and tubular balsamaria with equal body and neck

lengths, I maintain that the layer, like the grave, should be dated

to the Tiberian-Claudian era at the earliest, and with regard to the

presence of the remaining first-century finds, the grave cannot be

younger than the first century AD. Given the analogous example

and the find context, we may conclude that the Salona boat is an

Italic product of the second quarter or mid-first century AD and

possibly served as a container for dice and counters.
