Catalogue Description:
A jug with a bulbous, nearly spherical body and a flattened base. A wide neck with a thin tapering rim rises from a roughly impressed line at the top of the shoulder. A small wide handle with a flat section joins the rim and shoulder. Sufficient evidence remained to restore the small loop at the top of the handle. The shoulder bears a finely incised band of hatched pendant triangles. These triangles are set between irregular, incised lines that define the 3.5 cm band.
