Transparent pale yellowish green; numerous elongated bubbles and some scale. Blown; linear-cut. Neck of bottle: narrow and cylindrical. Rim plain, with top ground flat; neck descends almost vertically, but is slightly wider near bottom than at top, and it has small constriction just above shoulder, which curves out and down. Neck has broad band of linear decoration, which was cut but not polished, and which begins 2.6 cm below rim and ends 3.8 cm above shoulder. Decoration consists of latticelike pattern of diagonal cuts, none of which join. Cuts form two pairs of roughly diamond-shaped panels, with two open triangles at top of lattice and two at bottom. Panels in upper pair are about 4.5 cm high, and those in lower pair are about 5 cm high. Upper panels are filled with four short cuts at right angles to side, which do not touch but form crosslike design and have one shorter oval cut above and one below; junctions of upper panels are marked by two short oval cuts. Lower panels are similar, but have two short oval cuts above cross and two below it. Each triangular space at top of decoration contains one short oval cut, while each triangular space at bottom contains two short oval cuts and two longer diagonal cuts. Constricted area at bottom of neck has narrow band of light abrasion
