This is a poorly shaped circular lid (or, less likely, a token) formed from a fragment of a pottery vessel with a red wash/polish. It has a slight concavity due to the portion of the original vessel from which the source fragment broke off. The vessel fragment was also from section of recurve or narrowing.

Provenance
