Title:   Deep bowl: Patterned
Category:   Pottery
Description:   Fragmentary Mycenaean skyphos, with small base and slightly flaring mouth.
Narrow parallel horizontal lines below handles. Upper half of vase decoration with alternating chevron pattern and dot in circle. Base and part of handles also red.
Buff clay, red paint.
ADDENDA 2018: Medium-sized deep bowl with flaring rim and two horizontal, round-section handles. The base is a low ring.
The exterior decoration consists of alternating vertical chevrons and rosettes/anenome. Below the handles there is a group of fine lines and there is a narrow exterior lip band.
The exterior of the foot is decorated with a medium band. The handles are tri-splashed. There are clear traces of at least one band on the interior of the bowl (possibly part of a fine line group?). This last is missing from Mountjoy's illustration. There are clear traces of burning on the interior, which must be ancient.
