Painted Jar



Red ware jar with painted wavy lines on shoulder. Misshapen in the manufacturing process: bulbous with distorted mouth and part of the fabric on one side broken away. Recorded on the catalogue card as being from "Grave 18 B" (perhaps meaning Cemetery B at Abadiya, grave B18, or El-Amrah grave B18). CONDITION NOTE 1998: Hole near rim, large area of surface loss, pitted, surface dirt.
