Title:   Deep Bowl Fragment: Patterned
Category:   Pottery
Description:   Side of skyphos with handle. Orange on buff.
ADDENDA 29 November 2017:
One handle, one base and two body sherds (fragments c, d, e, f) from Lot 478, layer VII C (depth 9-10m).
One body sherd (fragment g) from Lot 569, layer XII A (depth 15-18m)
One body sherd (fragment h) from Lot 568, layer XII B (depth 15-18m)
ADDENDA 2018: Twelve sherds mended into four sections of a medium deep bowl with flaring rim and two horizontal, round-section handles. The exterior decoration includes a medium rim-band, two medium bands running below the handles, and an additional two medium bands at the foot. In the handle zone the decoration is panelled, consisting of a central triglyph with chevron fill and joining semi-circle fringe, flanked on either side by triglyphs with chevron fill, but no fringe. The handles are tri-splashed.
The interior is monochrome with a reserved circle at the bottom of the bowl (likely intentional). The paint is uniformly applied and fired fairly evenly pale orange. There are no obvious traces of use-wear (although the vessel is fairly worn). Clear burn smudges are found on the interior of the vase.
