A rough-textured light green cylinder. Around the base of the cylinder is a horizontal row of geometric and curling designs which look like a maze. Some of the details seem to be obscured or rubbed away. There is a central vertical blank panel running down the middle, which is flanked by horizontal lines of raised bumps which alternate with panels of similar maze decorations. The cylinder is topped by two symmetrical creatures with long curling bodies. They face away from each other and their scaled bodies meet at their tails, from which a squared arch arises, like a handle.
