This is a reddish yellow, deep-bowl-shaped, low-fired earthenware vessel. Such vessels were generally used for boiling but this example contains no trace of use and is therefore likely to have come from a tomb. The vessel does not have a neck, the mouth is everted, and the flat edge of the rim features a groove. The vessel body is widest towards the upper-middle section, and the flat base is rounded where it joins the vessel body. The inner and outer surfaces of the vessel body show clear traces of paddling, but it is unclear whether these are cord-paddled markings. The base retains traces of the potter&rsquo;s wheel.<br />
