Description

Medium Globular Jug with small neck, spout and small strap handle. Indirect rim with internal dent. Significant break in spout that leads down into the neck. Ringed base with "W1292" written in ink and small white round sticker also detailing "1292". Yellow impressed hieroglyphs, likely to have been added on at a later date. Nile silt with micah and limestone inclusions. Painted and likely to be wheel-made. Caked dirt or mud on base. Dark discolouration possibly caused by glue and significant other discolouration. Pottery vessel with inscription in impressed yellow hieroglyphs which may be fake. They read 'Osiris, father of the God Amun-Re, King of the Gods for ever and eternally, Iwteknefer'. 22nd Dynasty. Purchased by Wellcome in 1906 from the collection of Robert de Rustafjaell. Boscawen records this vessel as coming from Medinet Habu, but this must be taken with caution.
