"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.
Vessel of brown clay (completely fired) bearing buff slip with red-brown decoration in imitation of stone (granite or breccia). Painted on is the inscription: "im3hy hr Wsr w'b n 'Imn Nfr-hr". The yellow paint runs over the determinative for Osiris, the pot supported by a fott in "w'b" and the "hr" in the name.
Condition: Slip worn from bosy of vessel; chips in rim. Wheel made. Abbott lists two pieces of painted cloth as having been found with this vessel.
