Greek Ostracon



Greek text in black ink on the surface of a pottery sherd. John Garstang excavated about 250 tombs at "Beni Hasan South" near the mouth of the gorge of the Speos Artemidos in 1904, but this work is less well recorded than that of the earlier shaft tombs he excavated at Beni Hasan. Was on loan to the museum from the University of Liverpool 1912 - 2000. Institute of Archaeology collection no. 1260 or 1261.
