Abstract

Unglazed bottle has a flat base that narrows before expanding into the body. At the shoulder, the bottle assumes a funnel shape and supports a neck for 4 cm. before flaring to the rim. The rim is finished with a standing collar. The bottle bears whitish residue along one side from foot to rim, indicating that the bottle lay horizontally and partly in the ground. The base is irregular; the bottle cannot stand.
