Primary Description: 
Fragment of Bowl (?). Almost colorless, with greenish tinge; decorated in yellowish brown and dull pink. Blown; stained. Fragment of perhaps hemispherical bowl(?). Wall (Th. 0.1-0.2 cm) is almost vertical, but with slightly convex profile, at top of fragment and curves down and in toward bottom. Decorated on outside: bottom of register containing indeterminate linear ornament, which varies in color from yellowish brown to dull pink, resulting from application of either two different stains or one stain with color variations caused by uneven firing conditions.
