SlaneWright1980b, p. 548 (rev. KenchreaiIV: “ER 46 [is] ... Çandarlı ware“)
Small dish with flaring walls, thickened triangular rim, slightly concave floor. Turning marks on exterior wall and and underside of floor.
Fabric, firing, and surface description
Fine fabric fired to light red. (The refitting obscures all breaks so core is not visible.) Where fabric is visible through wear, there are no discernible inclusions. The darker red slip is smoother on interior.
Preservation comment
Five joining sherds preserve just over 1/2 of circumference of rim, complete profile, over half of floor; in general, just over half of vessel preserved. Modern plaster in-fill covered by brown-gray paint restores the body of the vessel. Slip worn and scratched in places, also dulled.
Preservation comment
Six joining sherds preserve ca. 60% of vessel. Slight abrasion and scratching on all surfaces; no visible encrustation.
