Designated MAE1260--radiographed, XRF
A sizable fragment from a medium sized LM jar, it is r/s here, a highly restricted, “cylindrical neck” vessel. Crimping and bending visible on the interior surface n/s transition suggest slab or coil connections there. The decorative schema consists of a single circumferential linear ornament on the neck, 0.16 cm in width, and a circumferential wavy line at the n/s transition, 0.12 cm in width. The wavy line is quite faint and not enough is preserved to estimate period length. Dense circumferential rotational striations are visible on the interior surface, while several circumferential rotational scratch marks ad striations are visible superior to the slip that begins on the neck. The exterior appears covered in a consistent gray slip, but where the slip is absent there is a Brown 7.5YR 5/4 color that mottles through. In addition to the coarse sand, significant frequencies of fine and medium sand are visible in the fabric. The internal surface is moderately covered in pyrite pops, none visible on the exterior. Breaks are hackley.
