Late Tunisian product, malfait, or e.g. Tripolitanian copy of Tunisian ARS model?
Tear-shaped outline(?). Keyhole(?) discus with uncertain curvilinear decoration in relief out to flat framing ring. Flat, wide channel on shoulder has relief on each side of four triple concentric circles (Bussière-Rivel Da14) and three almonds (Bussière-Rivel Ga11/12). Straight, thick walls. Thickened wall around seam; blobs of excess clay across top surface.
Fabric: 10R 5/8, red. Slip: 2.5YR 5/8, red. North African fabric: dense, hard, medium coarse, consistently fired, with uncommon white and black, subrounded to subangular inclusions. Thin, semimatte to semiglossy in places, somewhat uneven slip (thick wash?) over whole exterior.
