This paper publishes a number of Egyptian Naqada IIIB and First Dynasty palettes found in EB II and EB III contexts in the Southern Levant. The contexts are assessed and reasons advanced for the presence of these objects in deposits generally later than the production date of this palette type. The same material was later discussed in detail in Sowada 2009.
