A small amphora with a tapering body covered with rilling. It has a simple beaded rim with a deep groove underneath, narrow neck and oval-shaped curved handles with two deep grooves and a small flat hollow base. There are typological similarities between this amphora and the Palestinian Agora M334 (Arthur, 1998; Saguì, 2001).
