Stemmed dish with a quite flat profile. Geometric linear decoration round rim, rays below, interspersed with alternating rosettes and squares (with lines protruding inwards and face like the 5 of a die). 'Hook' pattern below and large rosette in centre. Labelled Kameiros on stem. Exterior of dish is decorated in an identical fashion to the dish, X0709.Shallow stemmed dish of dark buff clay, semi-fineware, with a high flaring base. The foot is hollow. Decorated in dark rusty red and glossy black paint; Colour: fabric 7.5YR 5/4 (brown), 10YR 5/4 (yellowish brown), paint 10YR 3/2 (very dark greyish brown), 2.5YR 4/6 (red). This dish is similar to X709 in pattern. To the exterior, a single line on the stem (reconstructed, probably on the evidence of X709), with four concentric circles on the body. On the interior, a flat wide rim of about 2.5cm is decorated with a herringbone design. The dish is covered with concentric bands comprising red tongue pattern interspersed with geometric motifs: rosettes, squares, guilloche, red bands, and box meander. The tondo is a large segmented rosette, as before. Medium brown fabric with no visible inclusions. Badly damaged on the surface with considerable paint loss in certain areas. This dish is technically superior to X709, and also appears to be flatter in its shape. Restored, with some minor paint loss. Given to the University of Birmingham by Archdeacon Hopkinson.
