Wall Painting



Painted mud and plaster fragment with a representation of a man seated and cleansing his hands with water before making an offering. He wears a white kilt with sash across the right shoulder and a blue broad collar. Behind his head is the trace of a vertical column of black text on a yellow background with a red border. In Professor Newberry's interpretation he belived the man may be catching water from the 'sycamore goddess'. The wall fragment is most likely to be from a Theban tomb.
