Black with everted lip and one wide horizontal loop handle on shoulder
Narrow-necked jar/bottle with an ovate body, hyperboloid neck, flared rim, 1 horizontal strap handle on the body, and a flat base. There are no molded/modeled additions and no decoration. There appears to be a burnished finish on the exterior. The vessel was likely fired in a reducing atmosphere as the surface is black and the interior is gray in color. There are wide burnish lines present. Evidence of usewear includes surface attrition on the bottom/base. The catalogue number is written in black ink. Black ink on the bottom of the base reads: "2844."
