Tooley-1989 Thesis (p.206 ) :
Bershah, purchased. BM 30719. H.32.2 cms (plate 44: 1). Three offering-bearers in a restored group scene. The 2 females stand with feet together wearing knee length white dresses with one strap over the left shoulder and short hair, parted in the middle, falling to a carved point behind. On the heads are trapezoid baskets supported by the left arms held straight (the second figure is wrongly restored with the right arm in the up position; the hand is clenched). The first figure has the right arm held out straight in front, the hand pierced. The final figure is male, carrying a sack on his back. The faces have eyes set straight, outlined in black, the inner canthi marked and having a cosmetic line. The brows are straight but slanted. By eye style, possibly early 12 dyn. (cf. p. 188. JE 49634, Mo'alla)
Early 12th Dyn.
