DECORATION (INCLUDING MOTIF AND ELEMENTS WHEN APPARENT): The vessel is red-slipped on both interior and exterior surfaces. The upper conjoined vessel (a carinated bowl rim) has a slanted scroll motif with tick marks that are divided by two sets of two or three vertical engraved lines. The upper and lower scroll fill zones have curvilinear engraved lines (Figure 205).
The lower part of the conjoined vessels has three scrolls with hooked arm elements. The scrolls consist of both single line and narrow hatched zones that partially encircle each other, but do not meet, and these are partially encompassed by a semi-circular hatched zone. There are free-standing open triangles within the scrolls, as well as three sets of upper and lower triangles that serve to divide each scroll from each other.
