Chapter Summary

The faience vessels considered in this chapter were highlighted by Flinders Petrie in his excavation account from Serabit el-Khadem and by Geraldine Pinch in her wide-ranging work of votive offerings for Hathor. Petrie noted that fragments of two situlae in relief nos. I and II below were scattered widely in the temple, and that the inscription on one of them identified the main subject as Ramesses III. Both situlae I and II can reasonably be assigned to Ramesses III's reign: their shapes, techniques, subject matter, and iconography are similar. Further, the author concludes that the king is deified in both vessels, witness the dd and ankh as well as the cobra staves. This view is supported by the findings of Bojana Mojsov in a dissertation integrating visual and textual sources from the reign of Ramesses III. The technique of the vessels certainly matches what is known of Ramesside faience work.
