Pottery sherd

Part of the rim of a vessel made from fine creamy ware, painted with a naked couple and lotuses.The man is bearded and the woman holds a large patterned object in front of her. This is a rare example of a narrative scene in Meroitic and was probably influenced by contemporary styles in Alexandria. The scene was possibly meant to be erotic.
