  9. On the upper cover, a single fillet creates a two-line compartment border to a central panel. The outermost figurative border is made by the repeated stamping of a foliated staff tool. Progressing inward, the next border is formed by a type of double-headed "monster" tool. A frame of five lines separates the two borders. A much smaller tool, of a two-legged serpent biting its own tail, fills the central space in two columns, framed by four lines. Although the lower cover is decorated to the same scheme using the foliated staff and "monster" tools, two quite different stamps form the two columns in the central space. One is a stamp of two birds drinking from a cup (which G. D. Hobson suggests has an Eastern origin); the other represents two cockerels back to back with a small star between them. (6)
