Description:   Late Roman B plate fragment. Preserves head and shoulders of a figure, perhaps a priest, with left hand next to his shoulder holding a Latin cross which touches his head. He seems to be wearing a surplice. The eyes are large and round and the hair rendered by neat vertical strokes within the head line. Stamped or drawn very neatly in the wet clay. The figure is part of the center ornament of a thick flat dish that is broken neatly around the edge; two parallel concentric grooves run near the edge.
Coarse red clay, lustrous red wash inside.
