This alabastron is decorated with horizontal bands and a frieze of animals on the lower half, alternating with black and red paint. The item has a body that extends downwards into a flat, slightly flaring base, and upwards into a narrow neck and a wide, protruding rim. There is a small handle in this flat area. The animals in the lower half are unclear as to species, but all are in the same identical pose.
