"Egypt Independent" (AP, 20.07.2018) and "Ahram Online" (Nevine El-Aref, 25.07.2018) report again about finds during the work on lowering the groundwater level at the Kom Ombo Temple:

A pottery workshop from the 4th Dynasty with the oldest pottery wheel discovered so far in Egypt. Workshops are already known from Predynastic Time, e.g. from Mahashna (Garstang, 1902) and from Hierakonpolis (Harlan & Hoffman, 1992). The oldest potter's wheel so far was an object from Abusir (Verner, 1995), from the reign of king Unas (5th Dynasty).

Greetings, Lutz.
