This unique motif is similar to that of the “Kenyon Island" motif, save for one important difference.  “Long Island” consists of vertical rows of painted dots that descend downward from the vessel lip on the interior of shallow bowls and/or plates.  The one example in the current collection has wide dots situated below a wide lip band that is present on the exterior, top, and interior of the lip. Sherds with designs similar to that of the “Long Island" motif have been noted from the Live Oak Point site, but no other comparable sherds have been illustrated elsewhere.
