Globular shouldered jar with direct rim and pointed base: complete. The body of the jar was handmade, possibly through coiling, while the shoulder and above was made on the slow wheel or similar turning device. The exterior of the lower half of the jar was done relatively hard, leaving several deep horizontal marks. The exterior of the jar is coated in a red slip which continues through the interior of the jar’s neck.
