Round bottom, depressed body; wide flaring rim with line and punctate zig-zag on upper face of rim.
Cooking pot (olla) with an ovate body, flaring collar, rounded rim, 2 strap handles on the body, and a rounded base. No molded/modeled additions. The vessel is squashed in on one side (pre-firing). The vessel has incised lines and punctate dots decorating the collar. The vessel was likely fired in an oxidizing and reducing atmosphere as the ceramic paste is gray and orange in color. Evidence of usewear includes residues/staining on the exterior and black staining on the interior. The catalogue number is written on the bottom of the base and black ink on the bottom of the base reads: "1641."
