This chapter examines the pottery found in the tombs of the South Asasif necropolis and its ritual function. A second season of the recording of the pottery from the tomb of Karakhamun was undertaken in late 2012. The main aims of the 2012 season were to sample the newly excavated material from the front areas of the tomb and to establish a dating of these ceramics. Another goal was to enlarge the corpus of recorded and drawn pottery. The focus of work on the ceramic material from Karakhamun's tomb was on Ptolemaic pottery unearthed during the excavation of the courtyard in 2012. The chapter also analyzes the pottery in the tomb of Karakhamun and the tomb of Karabasken during the 2014 season.
