Corinthian figured kotyle. Exterior preserves traces of two horizontal glazed lines. Above, delineated with faint incision and filled with glaze, are elements of figured decoration: what appears to be the leg and hoof of an animal at left, and perhaps another hoof at right (or a filler ornament). Between the two, at the upper edge of the fragment, a curved figure may represent the belly of the animal or another filler ornament. Late 7th-early 6th c. BCE.
Fabric, firing, and surface description
Fine, moderately soft clay. Thin, somewhat even, dull black glaze. Patches of discoloration.
One small body sherd. Moderate, extensive abrasion and sparse pitting; worn breaks; few specks of encrustation.
