This volume presents the blue-painted pottery from the EES excavations at Kom Rabia, one of the few specific site collections that spans the entire period of manufacture of this distinctive type of ceramics. All of the fragments studied by the author are presented within their find contexts arranged according to the main chronological phases into which activity at the site can be divided. Despite the fragmentary nature of the material, which does not permit a detailed discussion of its morphological evolution, it does enable a comparison of the decorative motifs with material from other major sites such as Amarna, Karnak, Malkata and Qantir. From this, it is possible to assess whether there was a Memphite production centre and how the Kom Rabia assemblage compares qualitatively and quantitatively to the others. The volume presents the first comprehensive multi-site listing of the decorative motifs.
