Decoration: Coral on neck; drop motif on collar; coral extends down from the collar and up from a quarefoil rock-work motif at the base, delineating a zone with dolphins within a net pattern. The dolphins (six in total) alternate their positions. Condition: Restored from fragments. Some sherds missing. The Marine Style is well known and has a long literature.
