Description
Tooley (p99): Geneva 23470 (plate 17:2). Dimensions unknown. Model granary obtained from Khachaba, possibly from Assyut (information supplied by Dr. Mottier). The walls of this square model curve gently upwards into the modestly peaked corners (c. 5-10 deg). The doorway on the left is painted boldly in red on the black wall. A row of 3 magazines with painted windows against the rear wall are mounted by stairs on the right. Two figures measure and carry grain sacks in the court whilst the scribe on the terrace oversees their activity.
