Dish with low foot. Six stamps extant, five complete: roughly concentric circuit of crosses aligned so that vertical arms radiate from center (one cross has right arm crossing break), two running rabbits within. Double band of large rouletting around crossed. Overall construction is heavy, and fabric is just slightly coarser than usual for Phocaean Red Slip.
Fabric, firing, and surface description
Slightly granular fabric fired to consistent light red, no core; some tiny varied bits including angular sand and a single large lime chunk visible in a break. Slip is variably preserved but was slightly darker; most thickly preserved on interior, exterior nearly plain in patches.
One large sherd preserves ca. 25-28% of circumference of base and large part of floor with turn to wall. Extensive, slight abrasion and rare pitting and scratching; slightly worn breaks; scattered specks of encrustation.
