Inventory Number:   P 16387
Section Number:   ΓΓ 829
Title:   Strainer
Category:   Pottery
Description:   About half of upper body and much of the strainer-bottom missing; restored in plaster. The bottom, pierced with a great many small holes, is shaped like an inverted broad low cone, but it was probably rounded rather than pointed at the center, which is missing. The upper part of the pot, with solid walls, joins the bottom at a sharp angle. The upper part is low, and at the top curves outward to form a plain lip. Vertical strap handle from the angular juncture of top and bottom parts to lip; the handle arches well above the lip.
Rather coarse reddish clay with bits; cooking pot fabric. The under-surface of the strainer is blackened, as though by (slight) contact with fire.
