This small jar is fashioned of a somewhat coarse deep red clay fabric with sizable limestone inclusions. It has a rough, rounded base and slightly narrowing straight sides that rise to outwardly bulging shoulders. A further constriction at the top ends with a slightly folded rim. Only a small segment of the rim remains, the remainder as well as a portoin of the upper shoulders having broken off. Some fragments remain separately. Much of the jar was also once in fragments but has been mended.
From Nubua (Sudan) Nuri, Pyramid 4 (tomb of Siaspiqa), 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.
