Pottery Summary

Pottery from T-26 1983 was categorized into 6 types: bucchero, fine grayware, fine orangeware, orangeware, impasto, and coarseware as per MT IV p. 35 .  All bucchero, fine grayware, fine orangeware, and coarseware was saved.  All rims, handles, bases, and 50% of the orangeware and impasto body pieces were also saved.  Pithos fragments were recovered, separated, and discarded.

All pottery was recovered from above the floor area and in most respects was similar to pottery found in T-26 1982: From the baulks in meters S-W/73-74, U/64-73, and particularly R-V/64-65.  Many fineware fragments were recovered, including stamped, incised, and otherwise decorated bucchero and Ionic bowl fragments.  Three full profiles were recovered, one a fine grayware shallow footed bowl and two impasto bowls.

The pottery illustrated on the following pages includes both common and unusual shapes.  For a more detailed study of the T-26 1983 pottery, the representative pottery boxes should be studied.
