A body sherd from a wheel-thrown ceramic vessel, dating to the Roman period, between AD 43 - 410 (dimensions: 42mm x 30mm; thickness: 4.5mm; weight: 8.52g). The fabric is dark grey and was tempered with quarz and small/medium-sized grit particles. The potsherd does not show any decoration or traces of a burnished surface. The sherd probably comes from a coarse ware vessel, possibly a small or medium-sized bowl, urn or jar.
