ADDENDA 2020:
Twenty-one sherds mended into two large fragments and four non-joining sherds to a medium-sized deep bowl with flaring rim, one preserved horizontal round handle, and a low ring base. Decoration is linear on exterior with a medium band at the rim and a medium band below the handles. The exterior of the foot is undecorated. A single splash decorates the handle. The interior is monochrome. The paint is evenly fired dark-brown to black. In the interior of the base there is a heavy degree of use-wear caused by scraping out the lowest contents. There are no traces of burning.
