Description
Small squat aryballos with short conical neck, flaring rim with rounded lip and narrow handle extending from back of rim to shoulder. Closely spaced diagonal ridges on body. Slightly convex base.
Fabric, firing, and surface description
Fine, slight laminar fabric with frequent small to medium rounded and angular lime inclusions and chunks; mostly fired to red but darker near exterior surface. Exterior surface likely had consistent thing darker slip but that is now variable.
Preservation comment
Six joining sherds preserve most of rim, all of neck and handle, most of body, and part of floor. The thin wash is largely worn away. Extensive, moderate abrasion and chipping; worn breaks.
