Comments

This object might possibly connect with the object depicted in Petrie 1901's pl. 2.7, based on the way it is photographed. However, Petrie's discussion of either object says only that they are from alabaster jars, not specifically that they from the same jar.
According to Aston, Harrell, and Shaw 2000, the material is more accurately described as travertine.
