Ivory fragments; one larger and four small fragments from probably the same round or semi-circular object decorated in low relief with one plain hand rim, one chevron incised rim, slanting hatch decoration, a vertical chevron incised band and vertical lines.

Muscarella Publication: "Several fragments of round (?) bases (?) decorated by vertical and oblique incisions and by herringbone pattern, all in high relief. On the largest piece the bottom is flat and intact; the flat top has the barest remains of a projection, suggesting that something once continued above."
