Comment
JLR 12-2020: not convinced that this is just red fired SAf. Suspect eastern Aegean, which has similar texture and composition.

Late Roman Amphora 2
Description
Truncoconical neck. Flaring rim with rounded lip; thickened inward above distinct indentation for lid seating.
Fabric, firing, and surface description
Fired consistently light red; slightly granular fabric with frequent small rounded to tiny light inclusions. Except for firing, near to standard LRA2 Argolid fabric.
Preservation comment
Two joining sherds (1232+1248) together preserve ca. 40% of rim and small part of upper neck. Very slight, sparse abrasion and minor chipping around edges; somewhat worn breaks; very rare specks of encrustation.
