This large jar is of tall slender proportions. Though the entire base is broken off and missing, it appears to have been bag- or drop-shaped when intact. The sides of the upper body narrow to fairly wide mouth with a thick straight rim. An incised line is just below the rim. A large fragment of the body once broke of but has been mended. Five additional (smaller) fragments are also present.
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.
