Wide ring foot angles outward. Slight, sharp ridge at midpoint of interior sloping face.
Fabric, firing, and surface description
2.5 YR 6/6 (light red). Slightly coarse fabric, rare small angular gray rocks; slightly micaceous; small to medium, irregular voids. Unslipped.
Preservation comment
One large fragment preserves over 50% of ring foot; numerous small and large sherds and flakes possibly from this vessel or (an)other(s). Severe erosion everywhere. From marine context: reddish brown fabric disintegrating, all edges blunted.
