Primary Description: 
Translucent dark yellowish emerald-green glass, bubbly with some pitted surface, patches of light brown weathering crust adhering in spots; mold-pressed, lathe-cut and polished. Fragment preserves section of rim and part of body, almost horizontal rim bends in to form a broad collar above a deep bowl as far as preserved; exterior is highlighted at the transition from collar to body by a lathe-cut groove which highlights the upper part of a wide relief band concave in profile which extends across the carination and is highlighted at the bottom by a second lathe-cut groove so that the lower edge of this band stands out from the surface.
