Rim
Fabric, firing, and surface description
This piece is an outlier in the assemblage. The granular fabric is consistently overfired with no obvious signs of exposure to burning. Fabric is pale green with large lime chunks and frequent varied (mostly dark) smaller bits. It is easily distinguished from Argolid fabric, though the overfiring may bring different aspects to light when viewed by eye and under magnification.
