Description

Pottery. One handle broken off, apparently purposely and in antiquity. Rim mended. Fabric of medium fine texture, almost completely reduced. Handmade. Poor polish. Band of flutings at point of greatest diameter. Handle fluted. the urn still contains the charred bones of the dead, apparently those of a young adolescent. Mixed with them are a few animal bones too charred to be identified with certainty.
