This is a poorly shaped circular lid (or, less likely, a token) formed from a fragment of a pottery vessel with a red wash/polish. It has a slight concavity due to the portion of the original vessel from which the source fragment broke off. The vessel fragment was also from section of recurve or narrowing.
From Kerma, Cemetery S, 33A?. 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.
