Ceramic vessels of all kinds are one of the most common finds (or to be honest, the most common) from this period. Here's an example, described as "Child's burial in a clay pipe of the type used in aqueducts". Dubious as that description is, I can at least assure you that the large pipe really is a water conduit - but most likely for urban transportation, not what we would call an aqueduct today. The finds here are dated to the 5th century Bd and were found in the Kerameikos area during the end of the 19th century (1891-92).
