A bluish-green jug with an everted rim, folded outwards, downwards and inwards which tapers into a cylindrical neck. The neck curves out into the shoulder of a square body, the shoulder forming the upper edge of the cube. The base is pushed in in the centre. A narrow, double strap handle is joined at the rim edge and the shoulder edge. The jug is decorated with one thick, horizontal trail running midway around the neck. Each side of the body displays a slightly raised motif. All are hard to interpret but two sides appear to show figure busts, another side a chicken, and the fourth side is yet to be distinguished.
