Fabric, firing, and surface description
“Ceramica grezza.“ Hard, coarse fabric with frequent medium, mostly dark with some light, angular inclusions, many rounded voids, some surface. Grey core; towards surface turns very pale brown, with very thin wash slightly darker than fabric beneath.
Two joining sherds (1376+1398) preserve ca. 30% of mid-body up to rim. Slight, sparse abrasion; mostly clean breaks; thin, scattered patches of encrustation especially on exterior under rim.
