This globular jar is fashioned of buff-colored marl clay. It has a rounded base, a gradual neck, and an outwardly rolled rim. The lower portion of the neck has two-four incised lines produced during rotation. Some irregular smears of clay were present on the jar prior to firing. The body shows some irrgular, lightly incised lines which, though possibly pot marks, are more likely incidental.
From Kerma, Cemetery S, grave 1302. 1914: excavated by the Harvard University–Boston Museum of Fine Arts Expedition; assigned to the MFA in the division of finds by the government of the Sudan.
