– cobalt blue glass - 3 vessels;
– honey-coloured glass - 2 vessels.

– white opaque marvered threads on purple glass (44 vessels), turquoise (2 vessels) and cobalt blue (1 vessel);
– mould-blown decoration (19 vessels) - the most common ornamental patterns: vertical or diagonal ribbing, roundish indentations and diamonds;
– greenish colourless glass painted in red enamel (11 fragments);

Most of the vessels were used for oils and perfumes, or for lighting fixtures.
