Description
Small flask with small flaring base. The base is slightly hollow. At the widest point the extant body has spiral grooving creating a ridged surface; exterior below that is smoothed, though with turning scratches. Interior carries finely spaced spiral grove to near base.
Fabric, firing, and surface description
Soft, fine fabric fired to consistent pale hue, very thin surface slip is same color. Very few inclusions, rare light sub-angular bits. Surface is very thin slip, same color as fabric.
Preservation comment
One sherd preserves base and wall to widest part of body. Minor encrustation but otherwise extant surface largely preserved.
