Rim sherd from a wheel-thrown Samian Ware vessel of Roman date (c. 43 - 250 AD). The rim is slightly everted and marked out on the inner surface of the vessel by a lateral groove. Below the rim is a band that curves outwards before angling in rapidly before the curved body of the vessel. The red fabric of the vessel is fine and hard throughout with a glossy red slip on both sides. The broken edges of the sherd are abraded and the slip has been worn away in patches on both sides. The object is 34.31mm in length, 29.87mm in width and 5.11mm in thickness. It weighs 4.94g.
