Fine Byzantine ware consists mostly of bowls, however jugs, juglets and other vessels may also appear. This ceramic family is wheel made and characterized by hard-fired and well burnished thin walled vessels, often with incision decoration. On bowls the incisions often appear as wavy lines. Fine Byzantine ware appears first at the mid sixth century CE and continues well into the Early Islamic period, up to the tenth century CE.
