Fragment (sherd) from a coarse red ware pottery vessel covered with a smooth buff coloured slip. Painted with a light band of blue and a representation of a wedjat eye in brown-black with a touch of red ("the good child of the Aten"). Marked on the back in ink "1039". From the 1923-24 excavation of the Egypt Exploration Society, from the Main City, find no. 24/1039. This appears as a handwritten addition on the 1926/7 distribution list, "1039 fragment of painted pottery from earlier work". CONDITION NOTE (1998): Some surface loss, surface dirt, adhesive on base. Excavated by the Egypt Exploration Society in 1924. Acquired by the EES in the division of finds. Donated to the East Anglia Egyptian Society by the EES in recognition of a contribution to the EES (excavation subscription). Donated to Norwich Castle Museum. Purchased from the collections of Norwich Castle Museum in 1956 by Liverpool City Museum (now World Museum).
