Description

Sampled for unknown test. Red Orange Rim with a buff slip on exterior. If the 16 in a square is really pointing to the Figure number [like the numbers in squares on all other published sherds] than the following is published about it:

" Ware: 5YR 7/4. Medium Core. Traces of Interior and Exterior slip: 10YR 8/2-4"

I am not an authority, but piece 47A-22 wasn't found by 2-23-01 and piece 47-2 appears to match the profile. But I can not guarantee this match up, only assert that it is in fact the same piece.
