Notes:  This type of decorated pottery is found mostly in the Naqada I period in the area between Matmar and Hierakonpolis, with a small pocket in the Aswan region. The object mark 'N+B' is possibly a reference to Petrie's publication Nagada and Ballas in which this king of Predynastic pottery was first described.
