Sorting Criteria

Complicated stamping on sand-tempered pottery. The surface of the pottery is not well smoothed before stamping, or the stamp is applied when the vessel is still wet. The interior is well smoothed, and tool marks are visible. The stamping is faint with narrow lands and grooves. Designs are difficult to make out usually. Common motifs are connected ovals, circles, and sometimes squares. Five to ten or more lands and grooves are used in production of each design. Vessels seem to be vertical walled large beakers. Rims are usually folded. Bases are slightly convex.
