Bowl fragment


Not on view

This bowl has been pieced together from seventeen sherds. Approximately half of the rim is preserved with the exterior and inner side decorated with brown paint on a buff background typical of pottery belonging to the Halaf culture. A lozenge pattern with central dots decorates the exterior and lozenges and striations adorn the inner rim. Halaf pottery is remarkable for the quality of its production and, as a result, often survives at sites dating to this period.
