physical_description
Jar of reddish earthenware. Globular, with flat bottom, short straight turned-out lip, and one small loop handle from edge of lip to shoulder. The painting on the body is dividing pairs of vertical bands into wide panels filled with diagonal cross-hatching, alternating with narrower panels of horizontal zigzag stripes. Outside the lip, triangles pointing downwards. Inside the lip, groups of concentric lines with a hanging arrowhead motive between them.
