Open form. The overall design of the central stamp is ambiguous as preserved: circular border around central circular element with sides cut out. The stamp is not in LRP.

Slightly coarse, light red fabric with occasional medium rounded calcareous inclusions. Slightly darker slip on all extant surfaces, thickest and smoothed on interior.
Preservation comment
One large sherd preserves ca. 50% of base. Surface in good condition but sparse pitting and chipping around edges; mostly clean breaks; scattered patches of encrustation.
