A restored bowl and five sherds from it. The bowl has two handles, a stemmed foot, a slightly flared rim and raking loop handles attached at its mid wall. The decoration is geometric of the White Painted III or II type in dark brown paint. Externally: two horizontal dark brown bands, one along the rim and the other at the lower part of the body. The white coated middle band is decorated with three concentric circles. The foot and the handles are painted in dark brown. The interior of the bowl has circular bands at the central floor, the lower body and along the fragmented rim. The clay is rather coarse, gritty of light brown clay, evenly fired soft with a well smoothed plain surface finish.The bowl has been restored by many sherds but the restoration is incomplete and there are still loose sherds from it, many parts of the rim and much of the body lost.
