African Red-Slip Hayes Form 105
Kenchreai IV, p. 96, no. LRB 27, pl. 23 (B. Adamsheck); LRP, p. 166, no. 1 (J. W. Hayes).
Plate with thickened rim and high ring foot. Rim is rounded in profile and offset from wall by groove on interior and sharp tooling underneath. Slightly flaring ring foot has one band of diagonal rouletting that has been irregularly smoothed by a flat tool, leaving the upper and lower edges of band more pronounced; the appearance is of two bands of rouletting.
Fabric, firing, and surface description
Slightly granular fabric with occasional lime chunks standard for later ARS (D). Thick reddish slip on interior is chipped and worn, though was well smoothed; exterior essentially plain, with some patches of excess slip.
Preservation comment
Three joining sherds preserve entire profile, 30% of rim circumference, and 50% of base circumference. Moderate, extensive abrasion, scratching, and chipping on all surfaces; somewhat clean breaks. One patch of dark discoloration: scorching?
