Description

Pottery. Base broken. Wheel-made. Fabric similar to MS974, reddish at core, outer surface brown streaked with red. A red color wash was applied, but much of it was removed perhaps intentionally by the strokes of the polishing tool to achieve a variegated surface. Single string hole bored after firing, perhaps at time of burial for attaching cover. On floor of bowl above foot two concentric grooves from which shallow grooves radiate to rim.
