"This item is a Glass Cinerary Urn with the cremated remains of a Roman child. The ROM is said to be haunted by ghosts; the Gray Lady, the ghost of Charles Trick Currelly (the first director of the ROM) himself, and the ghost of a child. Maybe this is the child that is said to roam the halls of the museum? Chalk that one up as another weird-yet-interesting find in the museum. Third floor, Eaton Gallery of Rome." - ROM
