Glassware, Silla, 5th century. National Treasure No. 193. "Glassware in Silla was excavated mainly in huge tombs such as a tomb of a king. Just like a gold crown and a gold belt that a certain class people could have, glassware also shows that its owner was in a politically and socially high class. Since this glassware is quite similar with Roman Glass of Russia and the Mediterranean areas, it is presumed to have been transmitted from the Eurasia through the Silk Road to China and Silla."
