Decoration Squat clay bowl with simple motif and two handles. Low foot painted with a black line. The bottom of the bowl is slightly angled (although irregular). The body (slightly lopsided) curves toward a carination where there is a slightly wavy horizontal band. Two handles, one either side and roughly with a line of black gloss. The rim flares slightly and is decorated with a line above a simple zig zag (which is of poor quality). The interior is almost plain with a ring painted at the base.
Inscriptions
Condition Complete, but worn. There is one small chip on the rim and considerable wear. The handles are intact and one is chipped. The black gloss has faded in parts.
