Typological identification
Late Roman Large-Bowl Funnel
Description
Rounded rim above sharp incurved carination; straight wall tapers downward toward spout (missing). Smoothed turning ridges on exterior, more prominent on interior.
Fabric, firing, and surface description
Thin matte pale slip on all extant surfaces. Fired with reddish core at lower part of extant body, darker towards surfaces and consistently fired darker towards rim. Southern Argolid fabric: only slightly coarse with occasional “lime” chunks, some mostly light sandy bits; occasional elongated voids.
Preservation comment
Four joining fragments preserve ca. 40% of rim and large part of body but missing spout. Slight to moderate chipping around edges but breaks otherwise clean; slight, sparse patches of encrustation.
