comment Cam 8/7. TR1C - orange-red fine sandy matrix with sparse argillaceous inclusions, red slip; flaked, abraded, no finish survives; fabric as Acutus P33 etc. No decoration. Reading: VERVICO. Condition - broken and repaired with adhesive in antiquity so 'standing' when placed in grave. Probably broken in half across the stamp with part of the rim detached. Die to the abraded state of the surfaces & the fracture the rubbing is poor & inaccurate when compared with the actual stamp [see KHL for repaired pots].
