DescriptionThe wider band below consists of two pseudo-inscriptions enclosing a frieze of roundels that contain a bird with raised wing alternating with a symmetrical palmette design; this frieze is bordered by a palmette scroll.  The upper band is similar, but instead of pseudo-inscriptions, it is bordered by dark blue leaf-like motifs.
