Scribal palette: a wooden scribal palette, with two wells containing red and black pigment. On the cover of the slot for pens (partly broken away) is a line of right-facing hieroglyphs in raised relief recording the throne name and epithets of Ahmose I. A wooden mixing-stick and four rush pens were acquired with this palette; two of the pens have traces of red and black pigment on the end, and two have red on one end and black on the other.
