Sorting Criteria

Check stamping on grit-tempered pottery. Reed punctuations sometimes occur in the rim area. Vessels forms are globular with a rounded bases. Rims are usually flaring, but can be everted, straight, or rarely incurving. Rim folds have been noted, but seem to appear late in the duration of the type. Lips are squared, stamped beveled, or sometimes rounded.
