Decoration The vessel bears an uneven black glaze, but it is partly fired red. There is a wide groove at the rim and two more at the upper part of the neck, from which seem to be hanging seven, double, semi-circular, white lines, each one flanked by vertical ones. There are also two grooves that contour the upper part of the vessel's shoulder. The latter bears decoration in white, of a branch with double-leaved (teardropped) motives. There is one last groove below that pattern.
Inscriptions
Condition The vessel has been repaired from ca. 10 fragments, however, part of the lip and three pieces from the shoulder are missing. There is also accumulation of deposits, especially in the interior, as well as some spots that have been pitted off.
