This is a 2,400-year-old baby bottle. This recently discovered terracotta pig was used as a toy and a baby bottle by the Messapii people of what is now southern Italy. These vessels, called guttus, had narrow necks and small openings from which liquids could be poured slowly, even in drops.

The beautifully preserved artifact was found in a tomb containing two adults and 30 funerary pieces.
