Primary Description: 
The vertical orientation of the three motifs in (1) is reminiscent of the pincered inscriptions found on a number of cylindrical bowls (e.g., Glass of the Sultans 2001, p. 129, no. 46; and Khalili Collection 2005, p. 99, no. 110). It is possible that (1) and (2) are parts of the same motif. In any case, motifs appear to overlap on the left side of the fragment.
