Distinctive Features

This is an amphora with a flat ringed bottom. The rim is pulley shaped with a ring in relief at the level of the upper attachment of the handles. The handles have a central groove. It is finer than the Oberaden 74 which distinguishes itself by a concave base and a handle with two grooves (Laubenheimer, 1985). There are no known whole examples.
