Size max. pres. diam.: 0.104; max. pres. height: 0.014; max. pres. thickness: 0.015
Condition The fragment is worn, abraded, and encrusted. Broken along six edges as the vessel begins to project upward away from the base. Along two break edges the fragment is broken through the base as well. Three breaks and two marks from modern excavation of the fragment.
Description

An impasto base fragment with small portions of the vessel wall preserved. The base is flat and circular, with a max. pres. diam. of 0.073 m. One incised line 0.001 m in width and 0.055 m in length runs roughly through the diameter of the base (not reaching the edges). From the base, the exterior flares outward at about a 45 degree angle before it carinates in such a way that the vessel body at that point would be just off a perpendicular angle from the base. Such a profile suggests the artifact may have been an impasto bowl. The interior of the vessel is finished and preserves finger marks from the process of throwing the vessel on a wheel.
