DECORATION (INCLUDING MOTIF AND ELEMENTS WHEN APPARENT): The rim has an engraved continuous vertical and slanting scroll motif repeated seven times around the vessel. The upper and lower scroll fill zones have negative ovals defined by excised bracket elements. The vessel body has four sets of curvilinear engraved scrolls with tick marks, diagonal engraved lines with tick marks, pendant triangle elements with tick marks, and curvilinear rows of excised punctations. Between the curvilinear scrolls and the diagonal engraved lines are curvilinear zones with rounded ends that have tick marks, an inner triangle with tick marks, and cross-hatched lines at the rounded end. These elements tend to occur on bottles (see Schambach and Miller 1984:122), not the body of a carinated bowl
