The Holy Land is the area considered sacred to Christians, Jews, and Muslims. It lies between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea. It had long been part of the Roman Empire by the time this flagon was made. At the time this jug was made, the Roman Empire as a whole was on the bring of collapse, and would soon divide into the Western Roman Empire and the Eastern Roman Empire.
