December 8, 1912 (continued)

burial place of G 2370 [GLYPHS] [Senedjemib Inti]. The place had been penetrated by thieves through the rubble filling above door. The chamber was half full of rubble. The walls were plastered, and the east wall north of door and the north wall bore a list of offerings. The coffin is a big limestone box plastered white with a single line of big black hieroglyphics around top. In the coffin a mummy, well preserved, lying on its back, head north - a pathetic sight, in all probability [GLYPHS] [Senedjemib Inti].
