This is a tall slender bowl with a small foot. Both the exterior at least portions of the interior are treated with a red wash, possibly polished. The exterior is also adorned with regularly spaced vertical rows of three, haphazardly applied white painted dots (looking more like sideways drop shapes than dots due to method/speed of application). There is a fragment missing from one side of the vessel leading into a crack; otherwise the vessel is intact.
From Wadi Alaqi (ASN112/24). 1911. Excavated by Harvard University–Boston Museum of Fine Arts Expedition for the Archaeological Survey of Nubia; assigned to the MFA in the division of finds by the Egyptian government.
