Description
Alabastron with rounded base. The surface is worn away, though it seems likely that diagonal turning bands were visible; there are distinct quite narrow turning bands on interior.
Preservation comment
10 joining sherds preserve rounded body up to transition to narrowing below rim. The original surface is essentially entirely worn due to marine exposure; the fabric is discolored.
