The glass finds did not originate from closed groups and so they were processed using a comparative, typological method based on divisions relating to technical production. Objects were treated as representative types and a record was made of how many objects, pieces and fragments of each type were found, and where the material actually came from in the temple to consider the distribution of material across the whole area of the temple, especially with regard to the temenos (the area containing the majority of the material). Material is widely scattered so that some objects consist of individual fragments that come from different parts of the temenos. Only a few glass fragments come from outside the temenos, from the cella: part of a glass with circular protuberances, fragments of a spindle-shaped unguentaria or lamps. This suggests that the dateable material runs from the 2nd century AD, through to the collapse of the temple in the 4th century AD, or to the fall of Narona at the beginning of the 7th century AD. First century AD material was found in the temenos. The earliest material, possibly Augustan, includes a ribbed bowl of mosaic glass , ribbed bowls, inscribed glass, glasses with mythological figures, a cylindrical pyxis, a ribbed bowl with pronounced shoulders, a ribbed bowl with applied trails, a skyphos, a Hofheim bowl, a beaker, a pyxis or cantharos, dishes with an annular rim, a tubular unguentarium, and what is probably a bird-shaped unguentarium. One should also note finds from the 2nd and 3rd centuries AD including: a flask with mould-blown designs in sunken relief, perhaps a vessel with a horizontal rib, a bell-shaped beaker with a wave relief, a small bowl with a rhomboid relief, a vessel with pinched fins, facetted glass, a bottle, possibly a small bowl with convex sides, a dish with ribbed coil on the rim, probably a small bowl or cup with a tubular ridge, and perhaps a conical unguentarium. A shallow bowl dates to the 4th century AD. We cannot include here finds that are difficult to date accurately such as the barrel-shaped bottle, the bowl or the beaker with a convex rim, or the window glass. We should stress here the cups including that signed by Ennion, the Aristeas signature, and the skyphos with a worn Sidonian inscription. The Ennion cup is the third or fourth such vessel found on the route to Tremithus (Cipar), Narona, Cavárzere (in the Adria area of Northern Italy), and possibly Tarragona (Spain) ; the cup with Aristeas' name is the third example with this inscription from the Roman world. This is the first time such finds have been documented from this side of the Adriatic, although the discovery of such finds should not be such a surprise.
