Gift of Eugene and Harriet Becker
Elongated rounded-top cylinder with an overall chevron-pattern in raised rows. Groups of vertical and horizontal rows deliniate large rectangles. On the top, a frieze of semi-circular rows, an arrow-shaped form, a raised umbilicus, and two other raised tools challenge the regularity of the form. Condition: Surface is eroded and base is broken. Entered Museum with mount.
Catalogued by Laurella.
