Description compare with 68-2. Top surface of the rim is rough and slopes back; a vaguely rectangular area 0.038m. Long and 0.019m. wide is rougher and sligtly raised, and may be a handle scar. On the front the rim is 0.014m. high, and below it there is a frieze area 0.06m. high which contains an approximatley 0.005m. thick relief lion facing left; the lion is probably applique and is similar to the spinx on 68-2. He is entirely within one plane except for his haunches which are modeled. Because of wear his features are not clear, and no incision has survived. He is lying with his mouth open and his tail curling up over his back. He is complete except for the extreme right-hand part of the tail and part of the front paws. the fragment preserves part of the vase surface below the frieze area. The inside surface of the sherd is dark and better preserved tahn the front. The thickness of the clay as well as the color of the firing vary considerably.
