Primary Description: 
Transparent green over colorless, both with small bubbles. Blown, cased or more probably applied, and linear-cut. Fragment from wall of vessel (Th. 0.1 cm), which was either vertical or almost vertical. Decorated with tall, narrow green overlay (Th. 0.05 cm) with slightly convex sides and rounded (presumably upper) end. Overlay has several cuts: notch near top of right side, groove near and parallel to right side, which expands and curves to left at top, shallow horizontal line in rounded top of overlay, and four shallow horizontal lines near left side. Immediately above overlay, shallow, presumably continuous horizontal line cut in colorless glass.
