Decoration Only the trefoil mouth rim survives on one secion. The other section has part of the handle remaining. These parts came from a large oinochoe as the handle is wide and thick and the mouth is large also. Apparently was all black originally. Handle was originally higher than the mouth. There is a groove which runs below the mouth, indicating the top of the neck.
