  • Catalogue text

    A continuous design of stylized, red plants, surrounded by tendrils against a blue background, similar to Cat. no. 1113 [EA1990.1120]. In addition there is a red band with a continuous, white vine with separate leaves.

    The reverse shows more dye saturation than the surface. The design is similar to a fragment found at Quseir al-Qadim (see Vogelsang-Eastwood 1990). Also published in Barnes 1990: 189, fig. 3.
