Title:   Krater Fragment: Patterned
Category:   Pottery
Description:   Pink buff clay, red glaze.
ADDENDA 2018: Four sherds mended into a single fragment of a small krater with horizontal flat rim.
The exterior decoration consists of stemmed bowl banding with a panelled handle zone. The central triglyph is composed of two side triglyphs filled with vertical zigzags flanking isolated semicircles.
The interior is monochrome. There is a narrow reserved band on the flat lip of the rim. The paint is thick and evenly applied, fired reddish-brown. There is a large round burn mark on the interior of the rim that extends onto the lip, but not the exterior of the vessel (possibly used as a lamp?). There are no traces of other use-wear.
