A Samian pottery amphora made in a compact, micaceous red-brown fabric. The jar has a small foot, concave sides, rounded shoulder and a short, cylindrical neck. On either side of the neck a loop-handle extends to the shoulder. There are two incised marks on the shoulder: one made pre-firing beside the base of one handle; the other incised post-firing in the middle. The surface of the jar is damaged in places, especially towards the foot.
