Primary Description: 
Transparent green over colorless. Blown, applied; linear-cut. Fragment from lower wall (TTh. 0.3–0.4 cm) and base of cylindrical cup. Decoration consists of applied green pad (W. 4.6 cm, Th. 0.1 cm) extending from above top of fragment to within 0.3 cm of base. Pad has linear-cut decoration: at presumed center, lozenge (H. 1.9 cm) inside larger lozenge (H. 5 cm). If ornament was symmetrical, single oval motifs extended from midpoints of sides of larger lozenge to edge of pad (and, in one case, beyond edge), and two parallel horizontal lines extended to edge of pad from each angle at side of lozenge.
