Flat slab lid, with knob or handle missing. Coarse, brown (7.5 YR 4/4) clay with light and dark inclusions, with decoration in red to brown paint and added white paint. Slipped on the upper surface, and burnished. Handmade (?). Circular bands, delineating two friezes, one of lilies and one of thick vertical lines. Added red: band. Added white: thin bands on one dark band. Large piece from rim preserved; surface eroded. The thick lines are probably a stylized and unburnished version of the ripple design.
