Descriptions
Description
The two horizontal loop handles on this bucchero kotyle (deep cup) rise at a slight angle away from the body. The body is simple, with a ring foot. Around the body near the rim are bands of decoration of incised lines and interlocking triangles or zigzags. The vessel is complete although it was broken into several pieces.
