Half of the base of a Roman greyware vessel. The base would have been about 12cm in diameter. The fabric is hard and coarse with an irregular laminated texture. It is light grey throughout and contains numerous poorly sorted inclusions, mainly quartz, with fewer slightly larger, round black inclusions and smaller particles of mica. Most of the original surface is missing. The centre of the base has a slight omphaloid depression. The base is 22.76mm thick.
