Core-formed glass alabastron.
Translucent wine-coloured trails, opaque white body and handles.
Broad horizontal rim-disc, tool-marks on upper and under surfaces; short, cylindrical neck; round-angled shoulder; straight sided body with upper taper; rounded bottom. Below shoulder, two vertical ring-handles with knobbed tails.
Unmarvered trail at edge of lip; another, marvered, dropped on neck and wound spirally round vessel, at first in straight lines, then in zigzags to below middle of body; below this a twofold unmarvered trail of which the ends meet but do not overlap (all carelessly executed).
Core-formed; rim-disc and handles trailed on and tooled, the handles formed by drawing upward from a drop-on at bottom and folding inward over a tool to make the ring. Middle of tails of handles almost completely sunk into wall of vessel.
