    This small amphora shaped as a torpedo has the bottom of its belly decorated with horizontal grooves. In the middle of the lower curb a very small "base" shaped as a button stands out. Such amphora were exported as early as the 4-5th centuries to different key destinations of the Punic world: Ibiza, Sardaigna, Sicile and Malte.
