Information

Fragment of an inscribed Egyptian alabaster jar (a canopic jar?). Thick good quality stone with clear neat sunken hieroglyphs in a frame. Only the lower part of the inscription survives, just four signs (sHpt). Possibly signs of burning or heavy staining. Trace of pencil inscription on the inside, seems to read 'M' above '13'.
