Typological identification comment
Incorrectly identified as plain tableware in Kenchreai IV. While the slip is thin and worn, the current identification is secure.
Bibliography

Conservation
Conservation in 1960s: minor restoration with gray plaster, some now detaching.
Description
Bowl with rounded walls and low hollow foot.
Fabric, firing, and surface description
Reddish fabric with occasional lime chunks and frequent tiny lime bits. Surface very worn on interior; exterior preserves some of the original plain surface and in those parts is typical for ware.
Preservation comment
One sherd preserves full profile and ca. 40% of base and body and 80% of rim. Slight, sparse abrasion and scratching especially around edges; worn breaks. Weathering from marine deposition: surface erosion dusty to flaking.
