Description

A rim sherd from a Pan-Grave cooking pot with band rim and cross hatching decoration. The rim band is perhaps slightly modelled. The exterior surface is uncoated, while the interior is black, compacted, and wiped. Excavated by the Egypt Exploration Society at Armant during the 1935–36 season. It was found in 1997 in a box with eight sherds labelled 'Armant 2 Pangrave sherd (Nubian Intrusion) 50/2945-50/2953'.
