Notes:  The distinctive ceramics of the Pan-grave culture are evident in sherds ECM 1946 and ECM 1947: a red polished exterior with blackened rims and burnished black interiors. Closed-form vessels found in Pan-grave burials are often Egyptian wares and thus may relate to some form of economic relationship between the two populations (the Egyptians and Pan-grave peoples). ECM 1946 was discovered in Tomb 211 and is indicate on the Tomb Record card, BAL.TC.211 (found at the Egypt Exploration Society), alongside vessels with distinctive Pan-grave rims and decoration.
