Rim fragment of a deep bowl. Ledge inside rim (for cover?). Buff clay and slip, brown paint. The surface divided into vertical panels; one is filled with “mountain” scale pattern, the points down, each filled with a dot; the panel frames are solid verticals flanked by fine “fringes”; the next is filled with vertical zigzag; the next by a hollow arc-form outlined by dots.
From Richard Seager's (?) Excavation at Mochlos, Crete.
