This cannot be distinguished from certain fragments obtained in the Neolithic cemetery at ballas.
The crucial case at ballas was the secondary burial of a Libyan found in one of a group of stairway mastabas.
These cists were found at ballas both in “stairway” tombs and in open Neolithic graves.
A rough example of No. 44 was found at ballas, used anciently as a lamp with floating wick.
The sides of one Neolithic tomb at ballas were lined with bars of this kind.
