Everted, thickened and rolled rim (cf. Fig. 188.8.131.52; cf. Attolini and Perkins 1992, Fig. 14-5; Perkins and Walker 1990, Fig. 33.8, 34.1-5).
Hooked rim with flat top (cf. Fig. 184.108.40.206; cf. Perkins and Walker 1990, Fig. 35.4).
Slightly overhanging rim with a flat top (cf. Fig. 220.127.116.11; cf. Perkins and Walker 1990, Fig. 29.5). Frequent occurence on Roman sites suggests it is a late Etruscan and Roman shape.
