Catalogue Description:
An amphora-like vessel with an oval body and a tall neck with a flaring rim. Pair of handles in the form of mountain goats rise from the shoulder. The body and legs of each simplified goat form a loop-like handle while the large horns of the turned back head sweep upwards to touch the rim of the neck. The two small "feet" at the base of the vessel are hollow and function as spouts. One side of the belly is painted with a pair of nested triangles having solid centers; the other side has a sloppy net-like pattern of red lines.
