Painted decoration makes this fragment from a Roman red slip redware vessel particularly interesting. Redware from North Africa was in common use around the Mediterranean in Roman times and to a lesser extent in Rome's European provinces between the 2nd and 4th centuries, which makes this lovely artifact at least 1,600 years old. It measures about 3 1/4" x 2 1/4" and is, I believe, from Roman Tunisia. The former owner acquired it from an English antiquities dealer.
