Description:Predynastic Egyptian bowl, from Nubia, with a rounded base that has a hole and gently curving sides, 3050 BC.

The vessel is made from a red ceramic and the upper one centimetre and interior are blackened due to the vessel being upturned in bonfire ashes after firing. The site reference number is written on the inside in red crayon.
