This fragmentary jar has a complex profile comprised of two globular elements joined by a short “neck.” The bottom globular element is intact, while the slightly smaller upper component is in fragments (one of which is large). The upper component narrows to a pulled, straight rim which has very thin incised lines along its surface. Some areas are blackened and some efflorescence of salt is evident.
From Gedekol (ASN 76/111). 1908. Excavated by Harvard University–Boston Museum of Fine Arts Expedition for the Archaeological Survey of Nubia; assigned to the MFA in the division of finds by the Egyptian government.
