From Mesaid tomb 681? Vessel is marked M/681/1, but on the tomb card and in the register that object is a redware pot of similar profile. Could be M/680/2- shown in photo B1966 bottom row (second from left but misidentified there also as 681/1 on the print). The real M/681/1 is identified in the MFA collection. 1913: excavated by the Harvard University-Museum of Fine Arts Expedition; assigned to the MFA in the division of finds by the government of Egypt.
