Distinctive Features

This is an amphora with a flat ringed base and a broad neck. The rim is everted without returning back on itself and ringed in relief at the level of the upper attachment of the handles, which have a groove. An ovoid body is assumed. There are two or three slightly different versions (Laubenheimer, 1985).

There are no complete examples.
