Description

During the excavations performed by J.D.S. Pendlebury in 1931-1932, in one of the rooms (P.42.2) of the Royal Magazines located to the east of the Royal House in the Royal Estate in Amarna, a medium-sized calcite vessel was found. It was inscribed with a text containing untouched cartouches of Hatshepsut and erased name of Amun. The town was founded in the place not settled before, so the presence of a jar seems to be surprising. According to the excavator, the object was taken from Thebes when people moved to the new town.[1]
