Corinth Object: Z 4
Collection:   Corinth
Type:   Object
Name:   Z 4
Category:   Miscellaneous
Category Code:   Z
Object Number:   4
Description:   Conical object; the base is flat, but not made exactly at right angles to the vertical axis, in consequence of which the cone stands with a decided list. The hole in the top is 0.042 m. deep. The lugs are somewhat smaller in proportion than in the two preceding examples (Z2 and Z4). On account of the slanting base one lug is slightly higher than the other. (Blegen, Zygouries, 187)
Decoration:   The surface, buff in color, now has no slip; it was once polished, but most of the traces of the polishing have worn away together with all the edges. (Blegen, Zygouries, pg 187)
Condition:   Complete or intact. Intact.
