Inscriptions
Condition Complete, but repaired. There three large breaks in the pot that have been repaired but are still very evident near the rim. Although the surphace is still smooth a large amount of the red pigment on the out side has worn away while similar occurances inside have meant that some of the decoration has been lost.
