Furniture support: female sphinx with Hathor-style curls
Period:Middle Bronze Age–Old Assyrian Trading ColonyDate:ca. 18th century B.C.Geography:Anatolia, probably from AcemhöyükCulture:Old Assyrian Trading ColonyMedium:Ivory (Hippopotamus), gold foilDimensions:H. 5 x W. 4 1/8 in. (12.7 x 10.4 cm)Classification:Ivory/Bone-SculptureCredit Line:Gift of George D. Pratt, 1932Accession Number:32.161.46
Around 1900 B.C., traders from the northern Mesopotamian city of Ashur established karums, or "merchants' colonies," at a number of central Anatolian cities, among them the site of Acemhöyük. Assyrian merchants lived in a restricted area of these cities, trading textiles and tin from the southeast for silver but operating under the rule of local kings. Acemhöyük is a large mound located south of Ankara near the Turkish town of Aksaray on the Konya Plain. It lay on a route linking Anatolia and the East and seems to have been an important center for the copper trade and industry. In 1965 a Turkish archaeological expedition found sealed bullae, inscribed clay tablets, ivories, and other objects outside the karum of Acemhöyük in two burned palaces on the highest part of the mound.
A group of ivories given to the Museum in the 1930s is thought to have come from Acemhöyük because of close similarities in style and subject to those known to have been found there. Ranging in color from white to gray-blue and a pinkish orange, they have been warped and discolored by fire and soil conditions. They were carved to represent the fantastic composite creatures important in the mythology of the ancient Near East. This small female sphinx is a form borrowed from the Egyptians. Her large almond-shaped eyes and spiral locks ultimately derive from the Egyptian goddess Hathor. As with the later ivories from Nimrud, this sphinx, one of four in the Museum, was carved as furniture decoration.

Statue of a Female Figure
Period:Middle KingdomDynasty:Dynasty 12, late–early 13Date:ca. 1850–1640 B.C. ?Geography:From Egypt, Memphite Region, Lisht North, cemetery east of Senwosret (758), Pit 752, MMA excavations, 1906–07Medium:Faience, paintDimensions:H. 12.7 cm (5 in)Credit Line:Rogers Fund, 1908Accession Number:08.200.18
Female figures of this type, often found with burials especially of the Middle Kingdom, were in the past called "concubines." Nowadays they are understood in a more general sense as representions of the life giving female powers of sexual attraction and giving birth, powers from which the dead could derive a new life. As most representatives of the type, this faience figure lacks the lower legs and has elaborate tatoos all over its body. The figure also wears a girdle of cowrie shell shaped beads and a long bead necklace crossed over the chest. The hair is arranged in the so-called "Hathor" style–two thick tresses with curled ends falling forward over the shoulders.

Feeding Cup
Period:Late Middle KingdomDynasty:Dynasty 12, late –13Date:ca. 1850–1700 B.C.Geography:From Egypt, Memphite Region, Lisht North, cemetery south-west of pyramid, "toilet basket II," deposited, not with burialMedium:Blue faience, paintDimensions:H. 3.5 cm (1 3/8 in.); W. 8 cm (3 1/8 in.); D. 4 cm (1 9/16 in.)Credit Line:Rogers Fund, 1944Accession Number:44.4.4
This little cup of faience was not found in a tomb, but nestled together with the figure of a crocodile (07.227.19) in a small basket deposited by itself in the ground among the tombs to the west of the pyramid of Amenemhat I at Lisht North. The person who made this deposit could have lived in one of the houses that had been built over the tombs in the cemetery on the south and west of the pyramid.
The shape of the cup permits milk to be fed to a baby. The cup is appropriately decorated with the beneficial deities and daimons otherwise found on the so-called "magic wands," thought to have served for the magical protection of infants (see 86.1.91). On this cup appears a walking lion, an upright standing lion, a long-necked mythical animal, a snake and a turtle.
