Vessel from a high official’s tomb

By Jacqueline Engel

This unusually shaped object comes from the tomb of Sabu, a high official serving the 1st Dynasty kings Den and Adjib.
It might have been used for royal or religious ceremonies, either as part of an offering tray or as support for a vessel or basket.
It may have consisted of two parts, but only one has survived.
1st Dynasty, about 2960-2770 BC,
Saqqara (tomb of Sabu),
schist, JE 71295

(Information of) the Egyptian Museum Caïro
