This is a large, shallow platter of reddish clay fabric. Most of the rim is broken off and missing. It once had a stand or foot (likely the former based on the remaining portion), but most has broken off as well. The central portion of the platter is blackened. There are areas of a sandy beige incrustation.
From Nubia (Sudan) Gebel Barkal, Pyramid 4 (tomb of a queen). 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.
