Looking for the realised and estimated price?

Description: Roman, Imperial Period, ca. 1st to 4th century CE. A pair of red tableware plates salvaged from a Roman shipwreck. These are simple plates, made for the average Roman citizen, probably in a Roman colony like Gaul, and would have been exported across the Empire as part of the larger consumer economy that marked the Roman Imperial period. Both plates have a simple form - a wide, shallow bowl with a low, pronounced foot. They were probably made in the same workshop. Both now have white sea encrustations, with the larger of the two having some iron staining, suggesting that it lay on the sea floor beside iron artifacts. Size: 7.5" W x 2.7" H (19 cm x 6.9 cm)

All items legal to buy/sell under U.S. Statute covering cultural patrimony Code 2600, CHAPTER 14, and are guaranteed to be as described or your money back.
