Faience is a glazed non-clay ceramic material made from quartz sand and natron. The flat rim is 7 mm wide and decorated with a series of black ticks which are characteristic of such vessels in the Ramesside Period. The interior is decorated with hierolyphic text reading Hathor, mistress [of turquoise]. Most likely this bowl was a votive offering to Hathor at Serabeit el-Khadim.
