Ampulla

 

* A small container about 3-4 inches high of pale yellow or orange clay, produced in the neighborhood of the church of St. Menas, near Alexandria. Ampullae, filled with water from a spring near the saint's tomb, were widespread in Egypt and throughout many regions of the Christian world.
