Fabric_description
Munsell_color 10YR 8/3
Decoration Black band on the interior of the rim, underneath of which a red line. On the interior, bust of a female figure drawn in outline and shown in profile to the left. She has a freckled face (six spots rather than the usual three found on faces in the Sam Wide Group). Her hair is bound up with a spotted kekryphylon (scarf) tied over her forehead. She wears a pine-cone shaped earring and a beaded necklace. Her drapery is clumsily rendered: a himation decorated with a banded (tongues?) border (shown on her left shoulder) over a thin dark chiton (shown on her right shoulder). She holds a thymiaterion (incense burner) out of which streams some smoke (six strands in diluted glaze). The remaining handle is dipped black on the side. On the exterior of the rim, a frieze of black tongues below the rim, with a thin line below. The foot is reserved, except for the interior of the sloping ring.
Inscriptions
Condition One handle and the attached part of the rim are missing. The black colour misfired to red in certain places (e.g. at the handle and at the external side of the rim, underside of the foot, tongues, below the tongues, where the thin line is now reddish-yellow). There are deposits on the exterior of the body and the underside of the foot. Small chips to the rim.
