A patera was a broad, shallow dish also used for drinking, primarily in a ritual context such as a libation, a ritual pouring of a drink as an offering to a god.

ROMAN FRYING PANImage of AH3982N Roman Frying Pan by Deepeeka (patera) by DEEPEEKA
This is a newly redesigned Roman cooking and eating bowl, based on numerous archaeological examples. It is manufactured of fairly heavy brass and the interior is tinned so as to keep food away from the unpleasant taste of brass. This version has been redesigned with the assistance of scholars, reenactors, and other experts from the online discussion board, Roman Army Talk. Heavy brass handle properly attached with tin lining for safety, this is the Patera to have! A great item for your personal kit. Please note that these utensils should not be used for cooking/ eating. They are for reenactment purpose only.

A Roman legion was a vast body of men who all required food. A soldier's daily grain ration was the equivalent of 1.5 kg (ca. 3 lb 5 oz), which was generally supplemented with other foodstuff.
However, this meant that the total consumption of grain was around 7500 kg a day. Together with up to 500 kg of fodder for the animals this made a substantial amount of food.
In military bases, units were heavily involved in their own supply. Land was set aside for the use of the military to plant crops and graze their animals. Further food was brought in by hunting expeditions. Archaeologists have unearthed the remains of deer, foxes, even bears in the scrap heaps of military camps. And yet an army was not supplied with food alone. Wine beer and olive oil had largely to be imported.
