Here is our Roman Situla. Situla, from the Latin for bucket or pail, is a term for a variety of elaborate bucket-shaped vessels from the Iron Age to the Middle Ages, usually with a handle at the top. All types may be highly decorated with reliefs in bands or friezes running round the vessel. Typically they are bronze, as in the types of libation vessels found as grave goods in the Hallstatt region of Middle and Southeast Europe and Etruscan art, where they have a distinctive style known as "situla art". These usually have a short narrower neck. Situla is also the name for types of bucket-shaped Ancient Greek vases, some very finely painted. More utilitarian pottery situlae are also found, and some in silver or other materials, such as two Late Antique glass ones in St Mark's, Venice.
