ADDENDA 2018: Nine sherds [including AP 2592, AP 2593, AP 2594, AP 2657 and AP 2658] mended into seven non-joining fragments of a very large krater with a horizontal, flat rim and a single partially preserved horizontal handle.
The exterior decoration consists of a medium band near the rim and two medium bands preserved running below the handle zone. The handle zone features a late variant of tricurved arch with chevron, triangle, and concentric arc fill. The handle attachment is outlined with paint.
The interior is monochrome. On the flat surface of the rim there are a series of reserved concentric triangles. The paint is thick and evenly applied, but unevenly fired brown to dark brown on the exterior and black on the interior. There are no traces of use-wear or burning.
