A cylindrical pottery jar with a flat base, rolled rim, and raised scallop patterning near the rim. Such vessels date from the Predynastic to the Early Dynastic Period. They are made from Marl clay, which needs a higher firing temperature that Nile clay. It was excavated by the British School of Archaeology in Egypt at the site of Tarkhan during the 1911–12 season. The object was gifted to the University of Wales, Aberystwyth by John Bancroft Willans, a subscriber of the British School of Archaeology in Egypt, who received the object in 1912, and was subsequently gifted to the Egypt Centre in 1997.
