Description

Cylindrical stand with solid base and slightly flaring rim. Coarse, pinkish white (7.5YR 8/2) clay. Wiped with water. Undecorated. Restored from fragments; a few sherds missing. Plain pot stands are occasionally recorded from Minoan domestic contexts, and several were found at Gournia (Hawes et al. 1908: pl. 1, nos. 6-8 and 16). There may be some relation to the similar but more elaborately decorated "snake tubes" (for discussion see Cadogan 1973; Gesell 1976: 247-259; Betancourt et al. 1983).
