Description:
Black-gloss bowl. Dish on low foot. Pale buff clay, rather more yellowish than MS1492, well levigated and fired. The dish is cracked across the foot. Greenish-black glaze much worn. Thin groove around the underside of the rim. On the upper surface, a groove around the center, then a rouletted band, then 2 more grooves around a cruciform design formed by 4 stamped semicircles placed back to back. In the spaces between their ends are 4 stamped human (or divine) figurines; 2 of them show the upper torso of a figure with rays emanating from the head. The left hand holds a staff, the right is obscured by the crude stamp. This figure alternates with a winged male figure, kneeling, holding a shield or bow in his right hand and a staff in his left. The same figure is stamped in the center of the dish between two grooves.
