Description
Probably LPC. Tiny wall fragment. A scale pattern with portions of three registers remaining. The pattern alternates rows of black scales with wide borders and those with narrow borders. The wide borders have two parallel incisions marking the outer edge and a single incision for the inner edge. The narrow borders are created by a single set of parallel incisions. These scales may originally have been decorated with added red. The scales are well executed. The incisions are fine, and the ends of the arcs meet exactly. Glaze: black and glossy, but badly worn. Clay: fine and smooth. Beige in hue. Munsell no. 10 YR 7/4 (very pale brown).
