Rim fragment of cup. Local Kamares ware. Straight pointed rim of small cup. Buff ware with black slip, red and white paint on exterior and red band below lip on interior. Three white dots are on the tip of the rim and a thin white horizontal band is below the red horizontal band of the lip. The white motif on the upper body of the cup is a band of loose triangles or what Walberg calls a spiral derivative, cf. Walberg Kamares, fig. 39 #8.30.
