A healthy third of a KA beaker or pot, the profile missing on the base portion. The decoration schema consists of a consistently applied band of oblique hatches sitting on a raised relief belt circumferential neck belt. The hatches run both upper right to lower left and upper left to lower right--together they compose a line of stylized, incomplete triangles. There may also be an incised line at the base of the relief belt, n/s transition. The highly polished, shining exterior surface hosts high frequencies of polishing marks and lower frequencies (max. 20%) of small spalls and flakes, some from pyrite. The interior surface features limited polish as well, down to the interior neck, but the polish is highly abraded and inconsistent. Below the polish, the interior hosts horizontal rotational striations, polish associated with some of them in limited amounts. Interior surface is highly mottled with shades of: Dark Gray 5YR 4/1, Very Dark Gray GY1 3/N, and Brown 7.5YR 5/2. Medium sand grains are present in moderate frequency in addition to the dominant fine sand fabric constituents. Coarse and very coarse grains perforate the interior surface in a limited number of spots. Possibly associated with the exterior surface spalls? Breaks are rough and corrosion is virtually absent.
