Catalogue Description:
Curved sherd, probably from the body of a false neck jar. Buff background, conventional red concentric decorations. 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.
