Wheel thrown sherd of a Roman samian fine ware vessel. This sherd demonstrates a rim below a plain band under the rim of the vessel which marks the top of the decorated zone. A small portion of the typical egg-and-dart border can be seen on the outer face. The fabric is pink-orange and the slip, although worn, is red-orange. Probably imported central Gaulish ware and formed part of a Dragendorff form 37 bowl.
