Beschrijving

This large cylindrical jar with slightly concave sides has a single rope band decoration under the rim. The jar has been made from one piece of alabaster, its surface has been polished smoothly. It was found in 1958 during the Dutch excavations in Abu Roash, in a cemetery of shallow graves which was in use during the early dynastic period. At that time, Abu Roash served as the necropolis of an important administrative elite. The names of two kings of the 1st dynasty, Aha and Den, have been found inscribed on other finds from the area. Most tombs in this cemetery had been plundered and damaged down to the substructures, but vessels of pottery and stone were usually still present. In the early dynastic period, vessels in stone imitated pottery of the same shape or floral examples. Because of the durability of the material, it was used for the eternal supply with food and drink to the dead. Unfortunately, it is not known what the original contents of this type of cylinder jars was.
