Pottery vase or kalathos with gently frustum-shaped body that is narrower at the bottom, with a concave external base and pictorial decoration. Above the horizontal edge is a series of triangles. On the outer walls of the vase are several horizontal lines and a series of circles in the centre framed by lines and further oblique lines at the base. The vase is made from orange clay with very fine slip of the same colour on the inside, and wheel-thrown. These types of vase are very common in Iberian culture and they are prized for their decoration. They were used for storing different products: honey, nuts, wheat, etc.
