Fabric, firing, and surface description
Granular fabric with occasional large to medium subrounded lime and varied frequent smaller reddish and dark rounded inclusions, and varied (mostly light) tiny bits, and occasional large golden mica flakes. The fabric here is not with ease directly assimilated to any LRA2 fabric. The surface wash is very close in color to the fabric.
Preservation comment
One large sherd preserves entire rim, almost all of neck, two handle stubs, and top of shoulder. Slight abrasion and numerous chips around rim; worn breaks; thin, extensive film of encrustation.
