Distinctive Features

The amphora has a pointed base similar to the Dressel 9 and 10 similis, but has many different characteristics. The everted rim is emphasised by a projection of the top which is sometimes pricked by holes. It has a full ovoid body, characterised by a large spike with marked luting. This bears a resemblance to the base of the Haltern 70. The handle has a central groove.
