Core-formed glass aryballos.
Opaque light blue and opaque orange trails, translucent dark blue body and handles.
Broad, inward sloping rim-disc, tool-marks on upper and under surfaces; short, cylindrical neck, shoulder almost horizontal; sharp angle between neck and body; body globular with pronounced round-pointed drop at bottom. Two tailed ring-handles with end-knobs, dropped on at carination, drawn up shoulder and curled inward at top to form a ring where handle joins the lower part of the neck. Middle section of handle-tails flat, thin, and scarcely visible.
Unmarvered orange trail round edge of lip. Marvered orange trail dropped on at shoulder and wound down, first in two straight revolutions, then in a broad zigzag panel, mingling with a light blue trail; below, an independent twofold orange trail with overlapping ends.
Formed on a core; rim-disc, handles and base-knob drawn on and tooled; trails drawn on, marvered (except on lip) and combed.
