This jar is fashioned of a light redware clay fabric. It has a rounded base with a bag-shaped lower body. The sides then constrict slightly at the mid-section before widening to sharp shoulders. There is a very short straight neck and a straight, haphazardly folded rim. The rim is chipped. The jar was once in fragments but has been mended. Portions of the body are missing.
From Nuri, Pyramid 10 (tomb of Amani-natake-lebte), NE foundation deposit. 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.
