4.4.5 Amphora fabric 1: Etruscan amphorae

Amphora with no distinct neck and slightly up-turned rim with handles rising from the top of the rim and arching to join the body at the shoulder.

The fabric of the handle is coarser than the body. The rim is similar to Doganella type 4 amphorae, although the handles rise directly from the rim. This is not common in Etruscan Amphorae but is standard in jugs.
