The renewed excavations of the Early Bronze cultic compound (Area J) at Tel Megiddo revealed a cache of 16 Egyptian-looking vessels, dated either to the EB I or the EB III. This discovery calls to mind the Egyptian-looking jar unearthed on the eastern slope of the tel by the Oriental Institute team some 70 years ago. The typological and technological study of this vessel, in the context of the new find, supplies additional support for dating the cache to the EB IB.
