Amphoriskos. Body widens upward to distinct shoulder; tall conical neck. Upper neck and rim are missing except for part of slight offset below rim. Base is flattened, though not regular and not able to support vessel. Surface has spiraled bands of light ridging interrupted by smudging towards base. The spiral on the body is distinct from that on the neck, which has some overlapping strokes and excess clay.
