Decoration Interior surface is black with a medallion, with meander pattern around the edge and two youths facing each other in the centre. The handles are missing from the exterior surface but there are palmette patterns on opposite sides, suggesting this is where the handles were originally. On one side is a stele with a youth either side, the left with his hands outstretched and the other holding a cloth and a strigil. The other side shows remains of a very similar picture.
Inscriptions

Five pieces were badly damaged when it was found in 1979 - more detailed in Ure inventory. Underside has been repainted.
