Pottery incantation bowl: flat-based bowl with simple rounded rim and string-cut base; wheel-thrown. Inscribed on the interior in a tripartite arrangement, moving to the next section in anticlockwise direction. Mandaic inscription. The name of the client is Fravarday son of Shiloya and his spouse Mahanosh. The centre of the bowl is delineated by a simple circle drawn in the same ink and a wild-haired demon is drawn standing at the right, with arms outstretched. A line around the top of the rim acts as a border for the text which was added after the drawing of the demon.
