Visual Description : Neckless vessel with beige paste and blackish slip over all. Incised decorationis in the form of a horizontal band encircling the shoulder. Within this horizontal band are crudely incised diamond shapes - in double-outline - which are punctated between one and three times. They resemble alligator motifs found on Chiriqui Polychrome ceramics. The incisions were apparently made before the paste hardened.
