This large rough redware globular jar is in fragmentary condition. Its surface has been decorated with incised line and hatched patterns: some seem to be abstract “y”-patterns, while some resemble fish or other aquatic/animal life. It has a high neck. One area is roughly finished due to exposure; there is a hole bored into one rim sherd for repair.
From Dakka (ASN 101/178). 1910. 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.
