Se caracteriza por presentar boca ancha con labio alargado, ligeramente exvasado, que empieza justo en el arranque superior de las asas y se separa del galbo mediante varias acanaladuras.

Context = pre-Roman amphora.

It is characterised by a narrow mouth with slightly everted elongated lip, which begins just at the upper part of the handle and is separated from the ??? by several grooves.

I would dearly appreciate some help, if anyone knows anything about archaeology! Thanks a lot.

    Hello Rose,
    Though I'm not an expert, I think the translation of "arranque superior" is pretty good, though it's really more the "starting point" or "point of joining."

    It seems that you can use "body" for "galbo:"

    Galbo : Lo que da la forma a la pieza , su cuerpo . Es la zona más característica del cuerpo de la vasija ; está situado entre la base y el cuello . El galbo del vaso es el que propiamente lo define y clasifica según sea su perfil

    Espero que sirva de ayuda. Saludos.
