Condition Fragment is broken on two sides, and part of the rim has been broken off. Surface is slightly worn with some pitting.
Description Fragment preserves on the flanged edge of the plate a roulette-style stamp which extends across the surface of the fragment. The stamps are square and measure 0.006 m by 0.006 m. The design is of a striding quadruped animal. The animal appears to have a projection coming from the middle of its back, possibly a wing. The rim of the plate is separated into an upper and lower half. The upper half is broken off, but a small remnant of the rim indicates that it extended farther out than the lower half. The lower half is flat and slightly rounded in shape.
