Around the base of the cylinder is a horizontal row of complicated geometric and curling designs. Above this there is a central vertical panel running down the middle with similar complex decorations, which is flanked by horizontal lines of raised bumps which alternate with panels decoration. The cylinder is topped by two symmetrical creatures with long curling bodies. They face each other and their scaled bodies curl away towards the edge of the cylinders. A slightly squared arch rises up like a handle in the middle.
