A Container is a lootable object that, when clicked, will often chuck out some loot and will stay empty for the remainder of the game.

Diablo II

Chests: The most commmon type of container. Chests sometime require a key to open.

Gold Chests: Similar to chests, but these generally give out more, and better, loot.

Urns: Jugs, urns, baskets, all these cultural artifacts can be smashed, often revealing loot.

Corpses: The bodies of fallen warriors often litter the areas you traverse, and can be searched for loot.

Evil Urn: Exclusive to Act V, these urns will give some loot, as well as spawning a Champion or Unique Monster.

Unmarked containers: Some containers will not light up when clicked on, but may be clicked on regardless, chucking out loot.

Note that many containers will be trapped.
