A biconical vessel with ridged lines around it. The vessel has a ring base, a handle, and a spout. A second handle is now missing. The surface has a white wash and is decorated with a plant motif (in black) just below the handle, a typical addition of the Ptolemaic Period. It is part of the Woking Collection, which arrived to the Egypt Centre on long-term loan from Woking College in 2012 (Engel 2020).
