A grey cast bronze box-shaped vessel stands upright on a grey background and faces diagonally to the right. It has a sloped lid that goes up and inward with a detailed knob at the very top. The foot reaches the vessel walls and goes straight down. The entire piece is inscribed with detailed, swirling designs with the bottom-center having a goat-like inscription. Along all of the piece’s edges are protruding thin, straight inscribed pieces.
