A type of Greek pottery used for holding oil, especially perfume or massage oils.

An alabastron has a narrow body with a rounded end, a narrow neck and a broad mouth opening. They were often left without handles, but were equipped with ear-shaped projections in which holes were punched so strings, or narrow ropes, could be placed to make it easier for carrying.
