Fossa Tomb 3, 4, 5
Pit Grave 3, 4, 5
4th century BC
Intact. Torus foot. Two lines, wheel-painted, encircle pot part way up lower wall. These serve as base-lines for a framed panel on each side. In the panel on each side is a horizontal spray of olive; above this on each side is a horizontal toothed design just below lip. Much of the color has disappeared from the decoration but what is preserved suggests that it was all in a dull red painted over yellow. Underside unglazed but traces of same dull red.
Purchased from Francesco Mancinelli-Scotti; subscription of John Wanamaker, 1898
