A rim sherd from a vessel of Roman date. The sherd is from a wheelmade greyware vessel. It has a large, curved, over-hanging rim proper, with an internal incised line. It is also decorated with a run of incised zig-zag marking next to the line and a second run of wider spaced zig-zags on the rim edge. The fabric is a light brownish-grey colour and is coarse to the touch with <3mm white (? chalk) inclusions as well as mica and ironstone. Approximately 12.5% of the rim survives and it would have measured 12cm in diameter.
