Typological identification comment
JLR 4-2020: Format is EByz Aegean (cf. Katsioti 2017, p. 491, nos. AE 15-17) but shoulder decoration is triangles from North African repertoire; also note this is a copy. Check fabric: regional or Asia Minor?

One large sherd preserves most of upper part above seam but missing front right part. Slight, sparse abrasion and rare pitting; worn breaks; very rare specks of encrustation.
