DECORATION (INCLUDING MOTIF AND ELEMENTS WHEN APPARENT): The upper part of the decorative elements on the vessel body are defined by two horizontal engraved lines; there is a single horizontal engraved line just above the vessel base. The main engraved elements on the vessel body—probably repeated four times—are two concentric circles connected to the upper and lower horizontal engraved lines by two or three sets of three short vertical engraved lines. Inside the center of the concentric circles is a single arrow-shaped zone with a single vertical engraved line, while there are narrow bracket-shaped engraved elements attached to the outer concentric circle. These zones have horizontal hatched lines.
