Abydos Shunet el- Zebib.
These Nile silt pottery vessels resemble large elongated canopic jars.
Pictured on the vessels are different divinities and genies, including winged disks and the deities Osiris, Anubis, Thoth, Maat and Horus.
The jars did not always contain entire mummies; often they held feathers and bone fragments from diverse birds.
