Northwest of the Town
Finely shaped black jug, melon-shaped, neck flaring, and with narrow collar engraved to represent plaiting, one vertical ring handle on body
Narrow-necked jar/bottle with an effigy-fruit shaped body, flaring neck, rounded rim, 1 circular handle on the body, and a flat base. The body of the vessel is melon shaped with vertical grooves down the body at regular intervals. There is a band of incised braided design between the neck and body and the handle is a strap formed into a circle. There appears to be a burnished finish on the exterior. The vessel was likely fired in a reducing atmosphere as the surface is black and the interior is gray in color. The catalogue number is written on the object in black ink. Black ink on the bottom of the base reads: "2802."
