Decoration All of the fragments bear part of the same decoration: the interior surface is glossy black as are the side surfaces of the foot (both on the exterior and interior), apart from a reserved (but glazed line) on the resting surface. The base is glazed so that it appears yellowish-brown and is decorated with four concentric circles and a dot at the central part of the base.
Inscriptions
Condition Three fragments of the same vessel's base. It appears that the body has mostly been scraped off around the joining point at the upper parts of the fragments, apart from a bit on b and two bits on c. a) There are adhesives on the interior and few spots have been chipped off. There are three tiny spots on the interior and a spot on the central part of the base, where there are also three cracks. b) Two tiny bits have been chipped off from the interior and a spot looks flaked off from the inner side surface of the foot. There are also traces of adhesives. c) Four very small parts have been chipped off from the interior. There are also traces of adhesives, especially on the interior, as well as two cracks on the central part of the base.
