Primary Description: 
Almost colorless, with yellowish green tinge. Blown; linear-cut. Two fragments, larger of which (a) has parts of lower wall and base. Wall (Th. 0.1–0.3 cm) tapers to plain base, perhaps with pontil mark. Decoration consists of somewhat sketchy linear cuts (W. 0.1–0.2 cm), interiors of which are rough: part of vertical panel bordered on left by two straight parallel lines. Panel contained two curved parallel lines above bifid leaflike motif. Smaller fragment (b, which does not join larger piece) has two parallel lines, probably from vertical border.
