Catalogue Description:
Large sherd, probably from the body of a false neck jar. Buff background, black and brown concentric decorations. Surface badly chipped. Small Mycenaean sherd, one of four. These sherds of little importance in themselves, are of some interest in our collection as being the first examples yet received of Mycenaean pottery from the Sudan.
