Romano: "Overlifesized, frontal anthropomorphic relief head with asymmetrical features. Round face with large protruding eyes with sharp ridge above left eye and thick ridge for upper lid on right eye. Left eyeball protrudes with no indication of iris or pupil. Right eye is largely broken off but seems to be set lower. Very large bulbous nose with large drilled nostrils. Flattened gouge beneath nose. Thick parted lips with deep channel between. Rounded chin with cleft. On top of the head to the left side and separated from the forehead by a drilled channel are two protruding clumps covered with individual rounded raised elements, probably grape clusters. At the top of the head and behind the clusters is a flattened, slightly sloping finished surface. Back of the head is broken off; a roughly finished sloping surface survives at the top of the head on the proper left."
