About this object

A White Painted III type shallow bowl with two horizontal handles, one at each side. The main panel of the body is decorated with five lozenges filled with a hatched design on one side. On the other side of the bowl only part of the decoration survives: two panels of vertical lozenges in between vertical stripes. Circular bands decorate the interior of the bowl at the central base and the lower part of the body. Part of the same dark band decoration can be seen along the rim of the bowl. The bowl is generally in a poor condition and much of its decoration is lost.
