- Curator's comments
- Some, at least, of the damage to this item has happened since 1947, when a 'shorter neck' and 'yellow trail at rim' were noted. The a total height of 9.3 cm. and a rim-diam. of 3 cm. were recorded.
The tomb also contained BM Glass 197, 356A, and 366, seven fragments of cast or blown vessels and part of a twisted rod (GR 1894.11-1.18-19, 21-29).
