A small wheel-thrown clay mug with a smooth shiny grey surface, decorated with parallel grooved lines and two rows of regular pressed pits that are most likely an imitation of marks on glass vessels.

Discovery: the grave was discovered during the rescue excavation conducted at a small biritual cemetery in 1985. An inhumation burial of a woman in a large pit was unearthed. She was buried in a boat-shaped coffin. There were three vessels by her feet which had been deposited later than the burial. The mug decorated with pressed circles was inside one of the vessels. Bird bones were found on the right knee of the buried woman, a comb – on the right femur, and by the left knee – a bronze belt buckle. The knee bones were damaged suggesting they might have been “chopped”.

All vessels from the grave inventory were thrown on a wheel and are typical of the territory of today’s Moldova and Romania, what indicates contacts of the inhabitants of the Hrubieszów Basin with the Lower Danube area.
