Inscribed Jar



Egyptian alabaster model vase incised with the name of Thutmose III (Men kheper Ra 'Lasting is the Manifestation of Ra') within a cartouche on body. The inscription was once filled with blue paste with only traces now left. The core is not completely carved out and there is no lid. Petrie describes that they (1977.112.15-17) were found as a foundation deposit in the middle of the temple area in three pits, in no regular order. CONDITION NOTE 1998: Chipped, worn, surface loss, surface dirt.
