Ostracon of Pharaoh presenting a libation at CMA

The Cleveland Museum of Art is presenting Pharaoh: King of Ancient Egypt bringing 3,000 years of ancient Egyptian history to life through some of the finest objects from the British Museum’s vast holdings and several of Cleveland’s own masterworks. The exhibit includes more than 150 objects and this was a favorite.

 It is an ostracon depicting pharaoh presenting a libation offering. From Thebes Egypt about 1186-1069 BC, made of limestone and 30x20x2 cm.
