What were ointments?

Ointment jars, from the Latin Unguentarium, were small ceramic or glass containers that were used to contain ointments or liquids intended for cosmetic or pharmaceutical purposes. The most widespread use in Roman times was to store perfumes, although they were also used in funerary rituals. Many remains of these small vessels have been found since due to their manufacturing material, they were quite economical for the entire population. Something that did not happen with glass ointment jars, which were much more expensive and delicate.

Without a doubt a very useful and versatile container even today.
