Late Roman Amphora 1
Description
Rounded shoulder. Tall, cylindrical neck with uneven ridge near top at attachment of handles. Plain, rounded rim, rolled outward, uneven in form. Entire mouth pressed by hand into oval. Vertical loop handles, round to oval in section, attach at upper neck and rim and at shoulder. Sparse bits of excess clay and depressions across surface contribute to general appearance of unevenness.
Fabric, firing, and surface description
Slightly coarse fabric variably fired pale red and pale green; frequent tiny inclusions, smaller than often the case for form.
Preservation comment
One large sherd preserves entire rim and neck to upper shoulder and both upper handles. Slight, sparse abrasion and pitting but clean breaks and otherwise good condition.
