DECORATION: The vessel body has a curvilinear scroll that ends in a single hooked arm element, rather than two arms of a scroll that meet at a circle. Each of the scroll arms begins at an upper hatched engraved triangle. Between each panel is a single prominent engraved dash, somewhat reminiscent of the series of engraved dashes on Belcher Engraved bottles (see Suhm and Jelks 1962:Plate 5k-m). A red clay pigment has also been rubbed in the engraved lines.
