Description A finial, possibly from the lid of a vessel, preserves a circular top section of max. pres. diameter 0.013 m with a circular depression on top. From a thick, rounded edge the finial tapers slightly inward for 0.009 m to a rounded band 0.003 m in max. pres. thickness. The finial then flares outward and takes the shape of a truncated cone of max. pres. height 0.020 m. The cone is incised with two lines around its circumference, creating three rounded sections of max. pres. thickness 0.006 m. The cone then rounds inward to a surface of attachment to a rectangular portion of the lid of a vessel.
