Help please, in dating a French Mediterranean clear corner shard

by John
(St Tropez, France )

Found on a beach in the Gulf of St Tropez, south of France Mediterranean Sea. It seems opaque from “Weathering” (apologies I don’t know the correct term) but it’s quite abraded and has all edges rounded. Looks like a price of clear sheet glass that may have been blown and flattened. Thicker along the edges and then recesses thinner towards centre. I think I can see a few small bubbles through the fog of the abraded surfaces but I’m not 100% sure.

It’s a roughly 90 degree corner piece and is approximately 25mm along the two straight sides. It’s approximately 6mm thick at its thickest edges. Any help identifying what it was or of what age or era would be appreciated. Thanks John.
