Details

  • Catalogue text

    Bands with patterns made up from dots; one has a wavy line representing a vine with stylized leaves added, another has a row of ?stylized flowers made up from a cluster of dots and a single stroke which might represent the stem. Additional bands are composed of lines of dots; the fragment is similar to Cat. no. 525 [EA1990.532]. The pattern is white against a red or brown background.

    Remains of stitching, the purpose of which is uncertain. The reverse is saturated with dye.
