Granary Model (Antiquities)

Currently not on display


The granary is surrounded by a wall and has an outward-opening door. Inside the courtyard is a flight of five steps leading to three silos which are accessible from above. Three men are engaged in dragging sacks of grain up to the silos. One of them is shown emptying his sack, whereas one other has already emptied his. The men are all represented with dark, reddish-brown skins and white knee-length kilts. Another man is missing. Two squatting men sit before a table and are perhaps scribes. One is wearing a white cloak that entirely covers his body. The other is wearing a cloak that exposes his right shoulder. Surface cracks but good preservation generally.
