Rolled Impression
Action of impressing a decoration with a cylinder-shaped die that is rolled onto the surface to be decorated (Balfet and al. 1983).
The regular rolling of a cylinder-shaped tool repeatedly stamps the cylinder’s expanded surface. This technique is characterized by one specific feature, which is regrettably rarely identifiable, especially when the sherd is small: a sequence, which would also help assess the tool’s diameter.
