Description:   Rectangular eschara. Small bits of sides and edges missing; one corner broken of, and a corner of the support gone. Handles missing. The brazier is supported on a rectangular foot, hollow, with a small rectangular hole at the top of either side. The edge of the foot is somewhat spreading. The receptacle for the coals slopes gradually down from a wide and projecting rim. On either end of the rim are two raised edges, presumably to hold the ends of spits across the coals, or a grate on which to support a cooking pot.
Reddish, coarse clay, micaceous; unglazed. Traces of burning.
