Description
Jug with neck and single handle. Strap handle has six quite deep, closely spaced grooves and extends from neck to upper body. Neck is offset from body by tooled groove. Wide grooves in body in incompletely preserved pattern. Vertical, except opposite handle where they slope down to right; no grooves beneath handle.
Fabric, firing, and surface description
Slightly granular fabric with mostly small to tiny light angular inclusions (many lime), some large lime chunks now exploding on exterior surface. Elongated voids. Thin worn and matte slip on exterior is distinctly darker (5YR 4/3 “reddish brown”); interior plain.
Preservation comment
Four joining sherds preserve part of upper body to just below widest point, lower neck, particularly where attached to complete handle. Slight, somewhat extensive abrasion and scattered gouging; worn breaks.
