Face-neck narrow-necked jar/bottle (aríbalo, aryballos) with an ovate body, cylindrical neck, rounded rim, 2 strap handles on the body, and a conical (aribaloid) base. There is a modeled/molded face on the neck with eyes, nose, mouth, chin, and ear spools. 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 incised arms on the body. The catalogue number is written on the object in black ink. Black ink on the interior of neck reads: "3130."
