This handmade cup was smoothed inside with the fingers, and the outer surface burnished with a smooth pebble. The rim decoration consists of two rings of impressed triangles filled with white pigment, creating a pattern of raised black lozenges. Below, a series of triangles and lozenges are filled with short hatched lines that are enhanced with white pigment.
