P 11868. H. rest. 0.083; D. rest. 0.062. Fragmentary; base does not join; restored. Coarse, gritty, reddish clay. Jug with ovoid body, rounded base. A parallel is found in P 19113, which comes from the early 1st century B.C. filling of Deposit N 20:4
(cf. P 12154, cited under F 65); F 58 may be earlier than the mass of material in the upper fill of Deposit N 19:1.
P 8902. H. 0.117; D. 0.101. Part of lip restored. Hard, reddish clay; yellow-buff slip. Plump, ovoid body on flat base; round mouth with everted lip; handle rises above lip.
Greenish gray clay with large grits; the interior surface is mottled with irregular streaks of light purple color.
Deep bowl on ring foot; everted, horizontal rim, grooved on top.
A close parallel to this shape can be found in P 21755, from the Augustan filling of Deposit R 10:1. The coloration of the clay of F 60 is typical of much of the coarse Attic pottery (and of some of the storage amphorae) of the late 1st century before and the 1st century after Christ.
Soft, pinkish buff clay with grits.
Similar to F 60 but of more slender proportions.
P 11888. H. 0.145; D. est. 0.435. Fragmentary; partly restored.
Coarse, dark red clay with grits, fired buff at surface on upper part of exterior; dull, reddish glaze applied irregularly inside.
Shallow basin with flat base; the rim may have been oval rather than round. Two horizontal twist handles applied under and along the edge of the rim; at center each handle was made to adhere firmly by pressure of the potter's thumb drawing the clay of the handle over onto the top of the rim.
Earlier variations of this shape, as E 119 (Thompson, H.P., p. 414, fig. 101) and P 11889 (from the upper fill of Deposit N19:1, but probably representing an intrusion of earlier material) have a down-turned rim without grooves. A parallel to F 62 can be found in P 7969, which comes from the Augustan filling of Deposit B 13:1.
