Pot : urn : cordoned
Pot : urn : cordoned Two distinct cordons and a well-defined raised ridge encircle this vessel. The rim is flat and simple. (This vessel has been strengthened internally with plaster of Paris, hence it is impossible to establish its correct profile). Under the rim two horizontal lines of cord occur. The impression made by this cord is unusual in that it is extremely deep and at the same time a very fine whipped cord. So fine is this impression that it was frequently lost in the wet clay. The main motif is made up of a double chevron with the angles between filled with oblique strokes in whipped cord. This occurs under the raised ridge and is terminated by the first applied cordon. The area between this and the second cordon is undecorated. The ware is loose and extremely friable. It is buff in colour.
