  • Comments:It has been suggested that the closed top could be like a cork or some type of stopper. The pot has similar lugs that have large, deep punctations. On the top lobe, the potiza has a band of arrow shaped lines pointing to a single, vertical line that is in the center of this lobe. This band is repeated on both sides of the vessel.
