Rim, wall, and part of base of small deep bowl. Final Neolithic. Red brown clay, burned gray black on pitted interior, where a red polished surface has been eaten away; pale brown smooth burnish with black and dark red spots outside (like Vasilike ware), cloth-wiped? with horizontal strokes. Straight profile curving in to small, probably rounded base. Neolithic cooking bowl in active use.
From Richard Seager's Excavation at Mochlos, Crete.
