Cup (?) fragment. Very like 09.783 but glazed inside. A bulging banded belt below, like a Keftiu cup, the upper wall flaring outward. Buff clay, brown-black glaze, but reddish-brown and streaky inside. From the belt, sprays of plant rise in both diagonal directions, with pale stem and dark leaves; between, a circle in the field. Floral Style.
From Richard Seager's Excavation at Mochlos, Crete.
Gift of Mrs. T. James Bowlker
