Crater. Narrow horizontal rim with sharp edges, flat on top and vertical outer face. Upper wall is slightly concave (H. 0.049) down to small edge that marks transition to inward sloping lower wall.
Fabric, firing, and surface description
Granular fabric is grey with frequent small light angular inclusions. All surfaces are fired patchy grey and brown.
