Egyptian Brown stone vase, Late Period, Circa 664-323 BC.

This type of vessel was used to contain the ointments used during mummification. Its stylisation and design make it one of the most stylised ointment vessels surviving from Egyptian antiquity. This jar is unique in that it has two handles on its stylised spherical body, suggesting that it may have been used for hanging around the neck while holding the ointments.
