This slender jar has nearly straight sides that expand from a flat, somewhat irregularly modeled, cord-cut base. The lower body is the widest portion of the jar, which narrows very gradually to a side mouth with a straight rim. A portion of the upper body is broken away and missing, and only about one-third of the rim remains. The remaining part of the jar was broken but has been mended.
From Kerma, Cemetery S, grave 1400B. 1914: excavated by the Harvard University–Boston Museum of Fine Arts Expedition; assigned to the MFA in the division of finds by the government of Sudan.
