Model of a Jar


Model of a jar. Perhaps representing a beer or water jar. Elongated, pointed base, constricted neck, everted rim, chipped. One of three similar shaped model jars from the same burial. One of 28 clay models of tools and vessels found in grave 154E '06. Similar model tools were found by the Liverpool Institute of Archaeology excavations at Abydos in 1907 in tombs 312, 329, and 360 (see Steven Snape, Mortuary Assemblages from Abydos, 1986, pp. 206, 210 and 221).
