The extreme rarity of the existing copies today is explained in particular by the fact that Egypt did not have any silver mine. This came from exchanges with cities in the Middle East, such as Ugarit, Byblos or Beirut. One can thus think that such objects were reserved for particular or ceremonial purposes. This super rare ingot constitutes the first monetary object dated in the world.
