As always, may be some slight dirt, marks, and wear.” Ptolemaic Bast Tomb Offertory Vessel, (332-300 B.C.E.) ***Special*** (OV20181) Click images to enlarge Description Welcome! DavidsOldStuff (Please see pictures above and below description) Egyptian Rare Ptolemaic Bast Tomb Offertory Vessel (332-300 B.C.E.) Approximately 2,000 plus years old! Material: Clay with Blue Faience Glaze. Approximate Dimensions: Height with top 6.0,” (without top, 4.5”) Width: 3.5,” (with handles, 4.5”) Depth: 3.5” This piece, in my opinion, is in Very Good to Fine/Museum Condition. This piece, which I have had for many years is likely from the Ptolemaic Period (332-30 B.C.E.) based on the seller’s description at time of purchase. This Vessel is quite unique, rare and very stylistic of this period. It is clay cast, fired, painted and blue faience glazed. It has a number of rows of painted hieroglyphics in Black and presented on the stopper is a reclining Bast or Bastet cat goddess. It is made of clay and has some of its blue faience glaze. There is one handle (rear of the piece), with some of the clay missing. This type of container was used for offertory unguents(oils) or spices. It is intact, has the lid, does have age use, nicks and scratches and areas of brown earthen patina showing. An incredible piece of ancient Egyptian culture. This piece came from a private collection based on my seller’s description. I believe this is Museum quality. …….A little History……. From the Seller "Offertory Vessels and Ptolemaic Period" Offertory and libation vessels were used as containers to hold unguents (salve), wine, water, foods, spices or consecrated oils. These vases were then brought to the temples, consecrated by the priests and presented as offerings to the various gods. They were also placed in the tombs as gifts to the gods or as libation and spice vases for the deceased. After the defeat of the Persian King Darius III, at Issus, in 333 B.C.E., Alexander the Great entered Egypt in 332 B.C.E. At the time the Persians had been occupying Egypt and he ousted them with his massive armies. Alexander made his way to the Oracle of Ammon at the Oasis at Siwa and was hailed by the Egyptian people as the god's son and Pharaoh incarnate. The Egyptians looked upon him as a divine being and saviour. Although his time was short in Egypt he made vast restorations and repairs to the temples and that were devastated and looted by the Persians. He also established the city of Alexandria. After his death in 323 B.C.E., he left his childhood friend and general, Ptolemy I, son of Lagus, as Satrap and ruler of Egypt. The Ptolemies ruled for almost 300 years ending with the reign of Queen Cleopatra VII. During their dynasty they never forced the Egyptian people to change their beliefs or gods. They adopted them and also had their own subtle Greek Hellenistic influences that were adopted by the Egyptian people. Legend has it, that when Alexander died his massive golden sarcophagus was towed from Babylon to Egypt and placed to rest in his beloved Alexandria. To this date, as of the date of this piece (almost 20 years ago), has never been found.
