"CUR" at the beginning of an image file name means that the image was created by a curatorial staff member. These study images may be digital point-and-shoot photographs, when we don\'t yet have high-quality studio photography, or they may be scans of older negatives, slides, or photographic prints, providing historical documentation of the object.
Pottery funerary cone inscribed for the Fourth Priest of Amun, Mentuemhat and his wife Niskhonsu. The stamped inscription, which appears in raised relief, consists of four lines of hieroglyphic text. The surface of the clay is brick red in color with the paertial remains of a buff slip (and some gesso?).
Condition: Inscription is somewhat worn (or poorly stamped); some small holes; otherwise good.
