Two Iron Age IA amphoriskoi from southern Canaan in a Twentieth Dynasty Theban Tomb

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Two two imported amphoriskoi from southern Canaan were found in Theban Tomb 148 belonging to the high official Amenemope, who served Rameses II, IV and V in the Twentieth Dynasty. One vessel was inscribed and both belonged to the original burial equipment of the tomb owner. Known examples from Egypt - including local imitations - and southern Canaan are surveyed, establishing that the type is relatively rare in Egypt and Canaan. The presence of the vessels in an Egyptian tomb of the first half of the twelfth century BC helps shed further light on relations between Egypt and the Southern Levant at the end of the Egyptian Empire in the transitional Late Bronze Age-Iron Age 1A.
