Samos Cistern Amphora
Description
Solid spike toe, slightly asymmetrical, tapers to widened panel at base above concave bottom. Lower wall flares to cylindrical body.
Fabric, firing, and surface description
Fabric slightly finer than usual for form, micaceous element represented by very small glistening bits; fired to red, rather than usual brown. Surface lighter brown than usual. But not so distant as to assign to a wholly different workshop.
Preservation comment
One sherd preserves entire toe and part of lower body. Very slight abrasion and chipping around edges; slight to moderate, extensive film of encrustation.
