Food storage jar

Three sherds from a food storage jar. This type of pottery was probably made in Devon and was burnished to give an attractive sheen to the outside surface.
The pot belonged to the Roman military era of a supply depot found by archaeologists on the St Loyes site that lay between the port at Topsham and the fortress at Exeter.
