A fragment of Roman ceramic Verulamium Region Coarse White-slipped ware (VCWS) jar, Hadrianic to Antonine date AD120-190. The fragment consists of a handle with two ribs and part of the body of the vessel. The remaining fragment is undecorated; the exterior surface has a thin white slip and the interior is an oxidised red. The fabric is oxidised red with numerous sand inclusions throughout.

Jars with this type of handle can be seen in Davies, Richardson and Tomber (1994:57 fig.47 No.262-263).

Dimensions: length: 43.14mm; width: 47.03mm; weight: 16.25g

Davies et al (1994:59) write "Most of the jars are Hadrianic or early Antonine in date. These include honey pots with both reeded and concave internal rim surface (IIK, 262-3)."
