Description
Large ceramic oinochoe. Ovoid body, relatively narrow neck with flaring trefoil rim. Wide streaky-glaze band over mid and lower body; exterior of neck and handle streaky-glazed. Four pendant hooks on shoulder, consisting of 11 concentric black bands, painted with multiple brush on compass. Height 0.080 m, diameter 0.105 m.
Comments
Found in an extramural occupation quarter (Sector HoB), in the same deposit as No. 93 and other vessels. Similar in shape and overall decorative scheme to No. 75, which is dated to the mid-sixth century, but the pendant hooks on the shoulder belong to an earlier decorative scheme.
