Kot Diji Phase

Kot Diji Phase (3300-2600 BCE) related sites and objects. This pre-ancient Indus culture is named after the site of Kot Diji on the east bank of the Indus River in Khairpur province, Sindh, and was excavated between 1955 and 1957.

Sherd with signs

On some sherds, two signs of the Early Indus script (Kot Dijian Phase) appear together. The complete shapes of these signs can be seen on later seals carved with the Indus script (see 43). The sign on the left eventually becomes one of the most

Inscribed sherds

Many sherds inscribed after firing have single geometric signs. This collection of Early Harappan sherds from Periods 1 and 2 (c. 3300-2800 BCE) show a range of geometric signs that are roughly similar to later signs in the Indus script.
