Bowl with incised leaf decoration

Description
This is a black slip ware bowl with an incised palmette pattern in the centre of the base. The bowl was found in Cyprus but the style was influenced by Greek pottery. This was part of a collection belonging to a local amateur archaeology couple but unfortunately they did not record how they acquired the objects in their collection.
