Cylindrical jar with flat base and rolled rim. Faint pinching slightly below the rim where wavy-handled decoration is usually located. Such vessels date from the Predynastic to the Early Dynastic Period and are made from Marl clay, which requires a higher firing temperature that Nile clay. This particular vessel can be dated to the Naqada IIIB Period. It was excavated by the British School of Archaeology in Egypt in grave 18 at 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. Subsequently gifted to the Egypt Centre in 1997.
