Pottery vase with wide conical neck and two handles. There are shallow wide horizontal grooves on neck the base between the handles. There is degenerate knob ornament on the belly: on the shoulder are four symmetrically spaced small knobs, two opposed enclosed above by pairs of concentric arcs bounded on either side by groups of diagonal grooves. Both surfaces are polished: the external surface is brown-grey and brick red, the internal surface is grey-brown. Vase is slightly burnt.
