Example of Egyptian pottery of the Naqada II period (c. 3500-3200 BC). Some of the motifs depicted on Naqada II pottery are also found in rock images produced by prehistoric hunting communities living in the dessert west of the Nile. During the Naqada III/Dynasty 0 period (c. 3200-3000 BC), pots with similar motifs were buried in funerary contexts where the earliest securely dated examples of Egyptian hieroglyphs have been found.
