A rim sherd of an Egyptian jar, possibly Pan-Grave. The exterior surface is burnished with a dark brown surface, but does not appear to have been coated. Vertical burnishing strokes are visible. The interior surface is dark grey, left rough/wiped, with no obvious turning marks. The Petrie Museum Archive distribution list for Armant lists this sherd as Pan Grave, dating it to the Second Intermediate Period (Nubian intrusion).
