an explanation of the purpose of these vessels, which are rarely
found in Egypt.
Relatively few amphorae were found in rooms D. 11-D. 15.
These are mostly small sherds of brown amphorae. Globular
amphorae are much more characteristic for the fills here;
similarly as in the levelling layers at site B, bag-shaped amphorae
occur side by side with amphorae whose form and combed
decoration refer to the Roman 2 amphorae as the prototype.
On the basis of the glazed sherds and Ayyubid coins the
dating of the pottery found in the fill of rooms D. 11-D. 15 should
be dated to the century.
