To answer your question though; the rim size, flaring, vessel thickness and overall angle.
I think one of my favorite things about the link (that was shared as evidence for biblical inerrancy) is that while bludgeoning the Bible in order to make it fit with the numbers, it ends up claiming that the bible contains a copyist error in 2 Chronicles.
I see it for what it is ---- a very profound illustration of the detail contained within the Bible that is often overlooked or ignored...
I'm afraid I fail to see how someone making up details that aren't there is a profound illustration of the detail that is there.
How many stalls of horses did Solomon have, 4,000 or 40,000?
1 Kings 4:26 and 2 Chronicles 9:25
40,000 (1 Kings 4:26) - "And Solomon had 40,000 stalls of horses for his chariots, and 12,000 horsemen."
4,000 (2 Chron. 9:25) - "Now Solomon had 4,000 stalls for horses and chariots and 12,000 horsemen, and he stationed them in the chariot cities and with the king in Jerusalem."
There are two possible explanations for this discrepancy. 1) a copyist error. 2) the difference is due to time; that is, one account is at the beginning of Solomon's reign (1 Kings 4:26), and the other at the end (2 Chron. 9:25).
Does this prove the Bible cannot be trusted? NO!
No link with made up numbers about Solomon's oats production to support the number of horses?
Seriously though, my apologies for my tongue-in-cheek comment that has continued the train wreck of misunderstanding of what is historically meant by biblical inerrancy.
