Abstract : This article presents the typological study of the glass assemblage from the Ciudad de Vascos (Naval-moralejo, Toledo) (10th - 11th century CE) that is now housed in the Museum of Santa Cruz in Toledo (Spain). Glass was evidently scarce at the Ciudad de Vascos. Accordingly, only a limited number of fragments have been recovered during the four decades of archaeological excavations at the site and these include diverse tableware objects (glasses, cups and flasks), ornament elements (ring glass gems and beads), for personal care and perfumery (suction pads or distillers, “toilet bottles” and caps). Remarkable is the presence of decorative flat glasses probably used for architectonical decoration. The colours of the glasses range from colourless, green, yellow, blue and white to deep purple. The deep purple glass fragments from Vascos predate previous Andalusian finds and thus necessitate a reconsideration of the relative chronology of this glass type in al-Andalus.
