dc.description Greek, Megarian ware, Late Roman or Byzantine period, c. 200 – 400 C.E.
dc.description The dark brown bowl is painted red and black; on its bottom, flower or sun designs are encircled by six protruding circles. On the body of the bowl are inverted arcs, each surrounding the solar bursts. They are made up of three arcs and are surrounded by ten small circles of which there are seven separated by a sun flower design. The arcs open to a border made up of two parallel lines and a repetitious design of ovals with two pointed ends, a small circle at each end between the lines. There is a deep chip in the rim, in addition to three minor ones, though the general structural condition is impressive. The surface remains heavily stained with dirt.
