Decoration Fragment from the neck of a closed shape, with a flat, thick rim (1.4cm). Flat, top of rim seems to have been painted white. The side of the rim has a pattern around it. The pattern has a thin, black line parting small 'U' shapes. The top half of the pattern has 'U' shapes in it, which have tiny, verticle, red lines inside them. The bottom half is the same, however the 'U' shapes are up-side-down. The neck and small piece of the body, on the fragment, is glazed black and appears to have once had white paint on it. The fragment has a small piece of the pot's body on either side of the neck. One of the sides of the fragment of the body has the top of two figures on it. The right hand side figure is the top of a head but its features are unclear. The left-hand-side figure appears to be a women, with her left arm raised. The underside of fragment is terracotta colour. The inside of rim is glazed black and the inside of the pot appears to have been left terracotta.
