Corner fragment. Two vertical faces each with deep incised vertical line and rough flat bottom. Same object as 19-12-29 and 16-4-112.3. The two inscribed faces of this object and 16-3-257 likely link up. They both have a finished bottom and are orientated vertically. Same unusual material surface is dark green gray color often with a crackled texture. All incised marks are very finely executed and very crisp.
