Description: Yellow-green pottery (vase fragment), 30 x 26.5 cms. Two sides. Damaged. The obverse contains 17 lines in black ink to the middle of l. 9, where the scribe continued in red. The writing on the reverse (7 lines) is also in red. The text of obverse is headed by a line of workmen's marks (or 'funny signs') with numbers/totals, after which the scribe started writing immediately beneath the neck of the vase. [the obverse actually consisted of 19 lines, of which the first consists of nothing but traces; the first two lines were not numbered by Černý.] Top obverse = top reverse. Along the right edge of obverse writing is lost in l. 11-17, and along the left edge of reverse also causing loss of writing.
