A rim sherd from a wheel thrown ceramic vessel, probably dating to the Roman period, between AD 43 - 410 (dimensions: 35mm x 17mm; thickness: 5mm). The fabric is dark grey and it was tempered with quarz and small/medium-sized grit particles. The make is coarse and the sherd does not show any decoration, but traces of a burnished surface. The sherd comes from a coarse ware vessel, possibly a storage jar or jar with angled base and lid.
