Hemispherical-bodied vessel, with a cylindrical neck and narrow mouth with perforated flat base and strap handle. It was used for the collection, transport and distribution of liquids. The bottom of the piece was submerged in the liquid and once filled, the upper hole was covered with the thumb and could be transported to another place where the liquid was sprayed. It was located on the ground floor of one of the warehouses of the site, and it could be both for day-to-day use or for ceremonies and banquets.
