With line pattern ornamentation in relief.
Cooking pot (olla) with a squat-globular body, tapered collar, rounded rim, no handles, and a flat base. No molded/modeled additions. The shoulder has a raised geometric decoration on it and the rim is painted red with white semi-circles. There appears to be a smoothed finish on the exterior and a smoothed finish on the interior. The vessel was likely fired in an oxidizing atmosphere as the ceramic paste is orange in color. The catalogue number is written on the bottom of the base and black ink on the bottom of the base reads: "1071."
