2002-09-17 MISSING black burnished bowl found in burial a16.It has a disk base, and a ribbed upper body, showing a very fine manufacturing. The technique of burnishing is clearly understandable by looking at the marks left by the burnishing tool: the outiside is worked with regular vertical marks on the flat surface; the marks are about 1.5 mm wide and were obtained starting from the foot down to the rim. There is a stripe of unburnished surface just around the foot, of about 4-5 mm, where the tool did not reach. The outside of the ribs is flat and burnished too, while the ridges between the ribs are not. Even the interior of the bowl has been burnished but the effect is less remarkable because it is not continuous as in the outside: inside it is interrupted by the visible curves caused by the wheel. The base is burnished as well. The bowl was found in fragments and was reconstructed in MZ14; the ceramic was very fragile and there where many chips and flakes. It seems that the production of these kind of black burnished bowls was focused mainly on the shape and burnishing rather than in the quality of the ware. Its poor condition is due to a bad quality of the clay, possibly with many inclusion, and to the firing. The color in section was grey with some reddish tones. In MZ15 fills were made with tinted plaster to fill the numerous superficial losses [Input: A16I58SB.j]
