Description Fragment is separated into two registers, an upper and lower. The upper register is decorated with a series of stamped lotus palmettes. Three are fragmentary and one entire palmette is preserved. Each palmette design consists of a lower, triangular element resting on its nadir side. The triangular element is derived from two sets of intersecting diagonal lines, bisected by a central axis line. The branches of the palmettes project diagonally from the apex of the triangle and consist of a central dot surrounded by a spiral pattern. The lower register is a roulette stamp design and consists of a preserved portion of a grazing stag on the left side of the fragment. To the right of the stag stands a sphinx or griffon with a curved wing extending from its shoulder.
