Object Number:   8
Description:   Small pot with spout and basket handle, EH patterned ware, Class C I (Patterned Ware, Dark on light, Free/Open style) according to Blegen (Zygouries); Poorly made small pot with a basket handle (not preserved) and a tubular spout projecting from the middile of one side. Below the attachment of the handle at the back is an irregulra swelling which may be a crude attempt to imitiate a rivet head, or may mean that the handle was ridged (but there is no corresponding swelling at the front). The bottom of the vessel is flattened as a base with a concavity at its center. The body is inclined toward the globular in shape with an angle at the neck and a slightly splaying rim. (Blegen, Zygouries, pg 104)
Decoration:   Large dots not in uniform shape, irregularly spaced. Perhaps the intention was to arrange them in three more or less horizontal rows running around the pot; if so, the scheme became confused at the back, and only two rows appear on the side opposite that shown in figure 89. Dots were painted also on the bottom of the vase and on the spout. The paint is worn and crackled and shows very little lustre. (Blegen, Zygouries, pg 104)
Material:   Buff clay with little mica
