Name:   Z 2
Category:   Miscellaneous
Category Code:   Z
Object Number:   2
Description:   Conical object; the surface of the base is slightly concave; in the top is a hole 9 mm in diameter, which diminishes almost to a point at its bottom, 0.01 m deep. On opposite sides of the cone, at a distance of 0.015 m. from the lower end, are two broad sturdy lugs protruding ca. 0.01 m. Much effort seems to have been spent on refining the shape which has been meticulously pared down with some delicate implement. (Blegen, Zygouries, page 186-187)
Decoration:   The surface is covered with a smooth durable slip, reddish brown in color, which is brilliantly burnished, except on the underside of the lugs and at the concave center of the base; the technique is similar to that of the pottery of Group A II. (Blegen, Zygouries, page 186-187)
Condition:   Complete or intact. Intact.
