2003.7.15 Piece of fragment made of red clay with pattern both sides. Fragment is slightly curved, with a small rim at the top suggesting it could be part of a decorative plate or bowl. Side A, which is possible the interior, has a broad black line at the bottom - possibly this was the colour of the interior, with five rough circles in a row, alternating black and red from the left hand side, painted on top of a white background. Side B has a similar broad black line at the bottom, with a broad white line painted at the top and several faded black vertical lines painted over the white. The shape of the fragment is rectangular, and it slopes to a point at the right hand side. 2007.03.1222.jpg
2003.7.23 Possibly part of the top of a bowl/jar due to the smooth edge at the top. The interior is painted black, and has a smooth texture like the exterior. The exterior has a wide band of white painted on, with a few black marks painted on which are possibly horizontal lines and small blacks squares - similar to other Laconian fragments.

2003.7.26 Probably part of a jar due to the way the bottom of the fragment juts out at an angle - possibly the body of the jar. The interior is painted black/dark red, although most has rubbed off.

The rest of the fragment is painted black. 2007.03.1192.jpg
2003.7.27 Small fragment, possibly part of a jar. Interior (side a) is painted black and curves slightly at the top - possibly a rim?

There is also a dark red line at the bottom of the fragment. 2007.03.1202.jpg
