Alabaster Libation Table
Location: Egyptian Museum
Photograph by: Diaa Khalil
This alabaster libation table, supported by two lions, was used for the liquid libation "water-wine" which was poured on the table and collected in the vase at the back, when the deceased could come and take it. It dates from the Archaic Period and was discovered at Saqqara.
