Description

Possible copper alloy mortar with spout, Unknown date, though stone examples with projections (see EC134, EC137, EC140, and EC141) seem to date from the Twenty-sixth Dynasty to the Graeco-Roman Period. Purchased by Wellcome at auction in 1906 from the collection of Robert de Rustafjaell.
