Description

A fragment of an architectural terracotta that preserves one finished surface, one finished edge, and three broken edges. The finished edge is preserved for a length of 0.032 m and preserves two ovoid impressions. The first is 0.007 m wide and 0.011 m long ar a distance of 0.003 m from the broken edge. The second impression is 0.007 m from the first and is of the same dimensions. The finished surface extends from the finished edge for 0.013 m before a 0.004 m wide groove runs parallel to the edge. The fragment then returns to its original thickness and extends for 0.009 m before ending in a scalloped edge. After the scalloped edge, the tile decreased in thickness to 0.021 m for the remainder of the fragment. Traces of paint are visible across the surface and within the scalloped edge. The thinner portion of the tile preserves red paint along the scalloped edge.
