Scarabs and cylinder seals which have been dated to the beginning of Dynasty XIII in Egypt (the early eighteenth century B.C.) (See Albright, “The excavation of Tell Beit Mirsim, Ia…,” p. 74, Kenyon, Archaeology in the Holy Land, p. 164) were found with bronze pins, torques, axes, daggers and spearheads like those common in Syria and Palestine in MB I along with two metal bowls (one silver and one copper), which appear to be prototypes of the MB II carinated pottery bowls (See P. Montet, Byblos et L’Egypte; quartre campagnes de fouilles a Gebeil, 1921–24 (Paris: Paul Geuthner, 1929), pls. LXLX–LXXI; Kenyon, Amorites and Canaanites, p. 49 and pls. X–XIV).
