Comments

This previously unpublished inscription was brought to my attention by Friedman (personal communication, 2015).
The Register entry for Acc. No. 10777 carries the following note, by then-Assistant Keeper Mary Shaw: “‘Narmer’ written on vase by excavator, presumably Dynasty I. Vases (10777-9) always in Type series, found by me in 1947, to be without number. It is probable that they received one and it has been rubbed off. It seemed advisable to give them nos. without delay. Mary. S. Shaw.”
This object is believed to be among the same group of vessels known from Abydos and Tarkhan and was likewise believed to come from a common royal workshop (MacArthur, personal communication, 2017).
