Late Roman Amphora 2
Description
Flaring shoulder. Somewhat short, truncoconical neck. Flaring, convex rim has rounded, inwardly thickened lip with groove made by finger just below on inner face. Sharp transition on outside from rim to neck. Vertical loop handle, oval in section, attaches at middle of neck and at shoulder. Very robustly made vessel in comparison to other LRA2s in the assemblage though within range for the form overall.
Fabric, firing, and surface description
Standard LRA2 Argolid fabric, firing, and surface treatment.
Preservation comment
One sherd preserves entire rim, neck, and both handle stubs. Slight to moderate abrasion, chipping, and gouging around edges which are otherwise clean breaks.
