Object Name Sherd
Description One sherd of black on cream pottery. Rim sherd of Biscuit B type.
The sherd is covered in a cream/off-white slip on both the interior and exterior of the sherd. The slip is eroded in some areas and the red of the body can be seen. The exterior of the sherd has the design of a bird figure on a base-stripe running parallel to the rim in a dark matte glaze. A small amount of black glaze is visible at the bottom edge of the sherd. The interior of the sherd is also decorated with a dark matte glaze. Three lines of dashes run vertical to the rim, conjoining in one horizontal line. These dashes form a paneled areas separted by broad open spaces between paneling lines. Beneath the horizontal line this pattern is repeated with shorter paneling lines and smaller paneled ares. These lines were applied with runny glaze making them uneven and inexact.
