Typical KA 'cup' fragment with a black-polished exterior and (reddish) brown interior. The sherd exhibits abrasion and corrosion over approximately 30% of the exterior surface, 10% over the interior, where coarse sand inclusions are visible pressing against the fabric limit. Like many KA vessels, there is some bleeding of the reddish brown interior color across the rim boundary onto the beginning of the exterior surface. The triangle pattern is pressed into the 'belt' on the vessel's neck and is composed of 3-5 pressed hatches per triangle, set into two opposing rows, resembling an interlocking tooth design. The beginning of an embossed decoration is visible on the shoulder, perhaps a spiral or portions of a figure. Sherd sent to Yerevan in summer 2007 in order to be drawn by Hasmik.
