Fabric_description
Munsell_color 7.5YR 7/4
Decoration Brick red paint on pinkish-buff clay. On the exterior surface is a band around the rim and one just below, but broader. Design is a little unclear but perhaps shows the heads and shoulders of two men (perhaps in a chariot ?) wearing clothing patterned with dots. On the underside is a red band around rim leaving the rest reserved.
Inscriptions
Condition Surface chips have taken away some paint and the part that has suffered most has the main design. Hardly any deposits apart from some dusty parts on the fractured edges.
