Description

Rim-sherd from a jar. Medium textured, pink (5 YR 7/4) clay with a redder core, with decoration in black paint. Handmade. Band on rim; pendent concentric arcs on neck; paint on upper shoulder and base of neck (wide band?). For the Dark-on-light Style from EM III Gournia see Hall 1904-05: pl 31, nos. 1, 3, 6, and 11. For a brief general discussion see Betancourt 1985: 62. The style seems to have been particularly common on jugs at Gournia. For the later development see Betancourt 1977.
