Two non-joining rim-sherds with the edge of the handle from one or two lids with flat tops and slightly convex edges. Medium textured, light brown (7.5 YR 5-6/4) clay with a darker core, with light and dark inclusions, covered with dark brown (7.5 YR 3/2) paint, with decoration in added white paint. Dark painted on upper surface and outside of edges; underside unpainted. Added white: concentric bands and waves on edges. Surface eroded. The shape resembles Seager 1910: fig. 4, right (Pseira). This is the light-on-dark counterpart of lids like MS4638.3 and MS4638.4.
