Sanzeno bowl.
Fine clay, from dark grey to brown in colour; moderate tempered of fine grained sand and cast gold at which that occurs more highly in various parts; reduction firing; burnished. High neck and the typical omphalos; restored by composing different fragments.
Between neck and belly decoration in form of two parallel, circumferential ribbons.
On one belly side, on transition to the bottom characters. The same characters inside, on the rim.
The find date, June 1906, given by Mancini is uncertain (cp. LIR: 112). Further find circumstances like exact find place are unknown.
In accord with the typology the bowl can be dated to the 3rd–2nd centuries BC.
Probably first published in Franz 1959: 228, pl. 2.5 (archaeological drawing of the bowl), however with particular regards to the inscription.
