Vessels

Two necks and fragments from two Cypriot form vessels (bilbil). One of them not from Sheikh Farag, but was combined with this field number in 1950 because of the similar vessel shape. Thin, hard, gray ware. A few body sherds have applied rigdes as decoration. Body fragments from the two vessels are extremely similar and have not been separated out.
Rest of items from this field number (b-d) are not present.
