A black LB bowl fragment with a single impressed line below the rim and a single incised line placed on the upper body portion. The rim is preserved for only the left half of the sherd. On the right side it has broken off. This bowl is without neck, although the impressed line at the r/s transition, which probably created the everted rim, resembles a neck. The exterior surface is highly chipped and abraded; it also hosts numerous pyrite spalls and one 1cm-diameter "hole" on the exterior shoulder. Delamination traces on the upper right portion of the exterior suggest that it may also have burned in the Aragatsiberd destruction. Sand inclusions and pyrite are also visible perforating the interior surface, although in lower frequencies than the do on the exterior. The exterior may have been polished, but with the poor preservation it is nearly impossible to say. The interior and exterior slips are quite thick, but not enough to be core bands. Very well applied, though. In addition to the medium sand in the fabric, fine sand particles are also visible in limited frequencies. Pale gray corrosion covers 40% of the interior surface. Breaks are smooth.
