General Information

This ware is reserved for a specific type of late Iron Age cooking pot with a sharply limited distribution in the seventh century BCE along the southern coast of Palestine. The fabric is most similar to a ḥamra fabric (example of hand sample colors: 2.5YR 4/8 (core); 2.5YR 4/8 (interior); 2.5YR 5/3 (exterior)). Goren describes it as “cooking pot fabric” that was derived from an unknown clay source and underwent special processing in order to prepare it for use in cooking (see Mazar and Panitz-Cohen 2001:20, Batash Fabric Group 15).
