BULLA: a hollow lump of clay made as an Etruscan ornamental pendant or in the Near East as a container for tokens representing goods traded. A bulla was round or oval and often was decorated with filigree or granulation decorating on the edges or seal impressions. There was a removable loop from which the pendant was hung, which may also have acted as a stopper for the bulla if it contained a liquid, such as perfume. [bullae (pl.)]
