Bibliography:  For more information, see:

C. Gallorini 2016 ''Would I Lie to You?'' The truth behind object marks and museum catalogue entries' in S. Boonstra (ed.) Objects Come to Life, Birmingham Egyptology.

Notes:  This type of squat jar is well attested at Sawama, in a range of sizes and with or without decoration. On the basis of the size, of the overall shape and of the small flat base, ECM 1957 belongs to type 82 in the Sawama corpus, but the description of the vessels in the original records is too vague to pinpoint the exact tomb in which it was found.
