Fabric, firing, and surface description
Clay: 10R 6/6, light red. Slip: 10R 5/6, red. Late Roman Athenian fabric (cf. KTH0177): somewhat smooth, hard fabric with rare, very small, subangular black rocky inclusions and very rare, medium-sized, angular, black rocky inclusions. Matte, very thin, somewhat smooth but uneven wash of slip, somewhat flakey.
One fragment preserves roughly half of discus, one third of shoulder, and one half of handle. Slight, sparse abrasion; thin, extensive encrustation around upper discus and handle.
