Inscriptions
Condition Complete. The white slip has worn away in places, and there is a smooth grey deposit evident in patches. Also, the munsell colour shows through. The features of the face are still fairly clear, but the eyes seem worn. The surface all over feels smooth, but the base of the neck is slightly uneven and a bit chipped.
