Description
Small flat base with thickened floor, string-cut; rough, unfinished outer edge. Flaring lower wall up to convex body. Probably mug or beaker.
Fabric, firing, and surface description
Light reddish brown fabric, consistently fired, slight gritty, with uncommon, small, poorly sorted, angular, white (“lime”) inclusions and other tiny bits. Thin, even wash same color as fabric. Corinthian. For material cf. KTH0713 and KTH1735.
Preservation comment
One sherd preserves 75% of base and small part of lower body. Slight abrasion around edges but otherwise good condition; scattered specks of encrustation.
