The third vessel section is comprised of seven rim sherds, 11 body sherds, and two base sherds from a shell-tempered Natchitoches Engraved bowl associated with Burial 4. The rim has slanting scrolls with downward-pointing excised tick marks and upper and lower triangular scroll fill zones with negative oval elements. There is an elevated narrow horizontal ridge separating the rim from the decorative elements on the vessel body. The engraved elements on the vessel body include curvilinear scroll lines (with excised tick marks) that end in hooked arms with curvilinear zones above and below divided into negative oval areas.
