Nine concentric rings from the neck base to the foot, in brown glaze. The original handles had a brown glaze on the exterior. The knob and covering of the false neck is decorated with a series of brown rings.
Buff clay.
ADDENDA 2018: Twenty sherds mended into a single near-complete profile to a globular stirrup jar with slightly conical false spout, flaring spout, and one preserved vertical strap handle. The base is not preserved.
The exterior decoration consists of a series of seven medium bands placed regularly from the junction of the foot and the wall up to the shoulder. The junction of the true spout is outlined with a medium band. The shoulder zone is decorated with joining semicircles and a triangular patch(?) of joining semicircles opposite the spout. The top of the false spout is decorated with a continuous spiral or concentric circles. The handles are monochrome painted. The paint is thick and evenly applied, fired brown, but badly flaked. There are no traces of use-wear or burning.
