Description:
Beer Vessel, with rhomboid pattern

Narrow-necked jar/bottle (ar?lo, aryballos) with an ovate body, hyperboloid neck, flared rim with lugs, 2 strap handles on the body, and a conical (aribaloid) base. The vessel has a stylized animal head in relief on the shoulder. The vessel is painted with a geometric design in red, brown, and white. There appears to be a burnished finish on the exterior. The vessel was likely fired in an oxidizing atmosphere as the ceramic paste is orange in color. Evidence of usewear includes residue/accretions on the interior. The catalogue number is written on the bottom of the base and interior of neck. Black ink on the bottom of the base reads: "2313."
