58.2.4 The lip of the jug is decorated with black lines compartmentalising the area; within every other compartment there is a design of lines of black dots. This design is carried on part way into the interior of the vase and onto the spur. The underneath of the rim is delineated with a black line. The neck is decorated with three compartments of decoration of unequal size. The compartments are divided by two black lines which enclose crosses surrounded by diamonds. Within two of the compartments there is decoration consisting of lines of vertical dots hemmed in by horizontal lines on either side; underneath are crosses with dots in each section and above is a mixture of crosshatching, lines and dots. The third section is undecorated apart from six groups of three diagonal lines, which form a vertical stripe of decoration under the handle. The body has decoration of long and short double lines containing cross-hatching reaching for the base (within the gaps there is a cross with dots in each section), below two such lines enclosing a string of continuous horizontal diamonds. The base is decorated on both faces with lines and circles. The handle is also decorated with black lines. 2003.92.0082.jpg
