  • Tile panel, dated 1591–2; Ottoman
    Syria Bequest of Agnes Miles Carpenter, 1958 (58.90.1a–g)

    This is a good example of the continuation of the Mamluk ceramic tradition after the Ottoman conquest of Egypt and Syria. Its inscription reads: "The weak servant Kayun ibn cAbdallah, the sinful, the one in need of God's mercy, founded this blessed mosque. It was built in the year 1000 [A.D. 1591–92]."
