31 sherds from an ovoid jar with pointed base: not reconstructed. Mostly body sherds, though half of the base is preserved. The body of the jar was handmade, probably through coiling, and very well smoothed on the exterior wall. The exterior surface is white slipped; the interior has some residue, likely post-depositional. Possibly parallel GPMP type AB2.
From Giza, G 4240 A. 1913: excavated by the Harvard University-Museum of Fine Arts Expedition; assigned to the MFA in the division of finds by the government of Egypt.
