[Along with MS4637.7] Two joining rim-sherds from a bridge-spouted or side-spouted jar (?). Fine, light red (2.5YR 6/5-5) clay with a paler surface, with decoration in red paint and added white paint. Wiped with water and burnished. Band at rim, inside and out. Band on upper shoulder; frieze of joined running spirals with large dots in centers. Added white: thin band on dark band on outside of rim; dot band on outside of rim; zone of vertical lines flanked by thin bands on dark band on upper shoulder; tiny dots on large dots in centers of spirals, and on circles at outer edge of spirals. The dating is based on the spiral type. Possibly a strainer?
