Description

Archaeological material. Made of clay, red-filmed, with two handles; black on the inside. The base of the pot is rounded so that the pot rests at an angle. The pot is in very poor condition; the entire thing is held together by glue. The mouth of the pot is very wide- almost as wide as the base. Several fragments are missing.
