A small and shallow LM bowl, light colored, with a protruding rim and no neck. The decorative schema consists of a register of circumferential oblique hatches incised into the lateral rim surface, running from upper right to lower left; a circumferential herringbone register of cross hatches at the s/b transition; and a single circumferential incised line just below the herringbone register, also at the s/b transition. All of the ornaments were likely incised with the same tool. Closer inspection of the second, herringbone register shows that for every upper left to upper right hatch, a single upper right to lower left hatch crosses. The core bands are highly blended, creating a subtle core sandwich. The fabric contains moderate amounts of fine and coarse sand particles in addition to the medium sand noted above. Fine and medium sand inclusions are visible in the exterior surface, but do not perforate the smooth exterior. The interior is perforated in several locations by coarse sand inclusions. The exterior smoothing ends halfway across the superior rim surface. Circumferential rotational striations are visible on the interior and exterior surfaces. The superior rim surface is concave and uneven, confirming that the bowl was likely a tableware, not a vessel for preparing or storing foods. Breaks are rough. Negligible frequencies of pyrite inclusions and corrosion are visible on all surfaces.
