Primary Description: 
Possibly Fragment of Beaker. Almost colorless, with yellowish tinge. Blown; slant- and linear-cut. Fragment from wall (Th. 0.1 cm) of beaker(?) with straight, perhaps tapering side. Decoration consists of two roughly parallel horizontal lines (W. 0.2 cm), presumably forming upper border of frieze. Below these, surviving part of frieze contains, on left, apex of narrow triangular panel flanked by narrow, pointed leaflike elements and containing hatched tear-shaped motif, and, on right, indeterminate curvilinear design.
