Jar of the Day Feb 11, 2014

On Feb 11 this was the vessel of the day. It is a Roman Terracotta Trefoil Spouted Wine Pitcher, 3rd cent. AD.
This is it after it was cleaned up. You can see where the handle attaches. Unfortunately we did not recover the handle.

This is another similar jar which we also found. this one has part of the handle still attached to the rim and the trefoil spout is in good condition. There is a picture of the full jar at this LINK. Scroll down to the bottom of the page to see the jar. It is the last piece of pottery displayed.
