Title:   Krater/Amphora Fragment: Geometric(?)
Category:   Pottery
Description:   Handle ending in a bull's head, buff clay.
ADDENDA 2018: Single sherd to a large krater with plastic zoomorphic handle. No other features survive. The handle was a double horizontal handle with round section. The attachment was fashioned into the head of an ibex(?)/agrimi(?) with the handles serving as horns.
The decoration is badly flaked, but it is clear that the attachment was outlined with a medium band. A similar band decorated the upper surface of the handle. The forehead and snout of the head were decorated with parallel lines and chevrons. The eyes were rendered as solid circles.
The interior was undecorated. The paint appears to have been thick and evenly applied, fired black, but little original surface remains. There are no traces of use-wear or burning.
