Abstract

Thin-walled, globular pot has two delicate handles that attach at the rim and at the low shoulder. Lid is missing. Base is a shallow disk trimmed from the object itself. A narrow band is inscribed on the rim below the upper point where the handles meet the rim of the vessel. Another narrow band is inscribed in the body at the lower attachment site for the handle. A small chip in the body creates a hole of 0.15 cm. Traces of the original brick red wash can still be detected.
