the 'Main Deposit'

In the temple of Hierakonpolis was found a deposit containing a great variety of objects, mainly from the earlier periods of Egyptian history, and presumed all to be votive offerings: the precise date of the deposit or deposits remains a matter of debate. Especially important for the history of Early Egypt are the palette of king Narmer and some decorated mace heads. Other finds from the 'Main Deposit' include mace heads, many glazed objects and ivory carvings.
