This artefact is represented by two fragments of a jug on which an artist has attempted to imitate metallic forms on the ceramic. It has a ring shaped foot, pear shaped body and an inverted trunk shaped neck. The entire surface appears to be richly decorated with a line technique that represents plants, geometric and inscribed motifs. In the cursive inscription appear the Arabic words 'al-ìzzah li-llâh' (glory to God) and 'al-â' (well-being).

These words are written with magic characters that protect the water contained in the jug.
