Black with small cat head
Narrow-necked jar/bottle (aríbalo, aryballos) with an ovate body, hyperboloid neck, flared rim with lugs, 2 strap handles on the body, and a conical (aribaloid) base. There is a modeled/molded cat head on the body just below the neck. There appears to be a burnished finish on the exterior.

The catalogue number is written in white ink. Traces of black ink on the interior of neck reads: "3127.
