Around the lip of this Maya cylindrical vase is hieroglyphic writing in what has come to be called the “primary standard sequence.” Such standardized sequences of glyphs are commonly found around the top of Maya vases from this period. These sequences have been interpreted as descriptions of the function or contents of the vessels and might even include the name of the owner or the scribe. The sequence on this pot has not yet been translated.

The depiction of the seated individual includes a plumed headdress, ear ornaments, necklace and loincloth.
