This two handled globular jar was found in the tomb of the New Kingdom queen Meritamun; however, it does not date to the time of the original burial. Instead this vessel was made during the Third Intermediate Period, and perhaps placed in the antechamber by those responsible for restoring the tomb after it had been looted. Found along with nine additional storage vessels and three plates, it is also possible that this jar might have been part of the assemblage buried with the 21st Dynasty Singer of Amun, Nany (see 30.3.21
), whose intrusive burial was found in Meritamun's tomb.
The vessel is made of a hard, fairly fine salmon-pink ware that, when fired, turned a grey-green color. On the exterior there is no decoration or slip, just some traces of dirt and staining, presumably from general domestic use. When found, the vessel was filled with an unknown liquid, Nile mud and beer yeast. Two pieces of pottery that date to to period of the original tomb owner were found floating in this mixture.
