Ancient People

  • Tjenti (near G 7568)

    • Type Mentioned on page
    • Remarks Two limestone offering basins inscribed for the scribe Tjenti. One basin (29-2-63) found in G 7000 SE 110 (Vol.22.p.872). Other basin (29-2-75) found in G 7568 E (according to excavation diary) or G 7000 SE 116 (according to object register); according to excavation diary for February 20, 1929 (Vol.22.p.877) this basin was found in G 7568 E, which is mentioned in the diary, but does not appear on maps and plans of this area and tomb; according to excavation diary also for February 20, 1929 (Vol.22.p.878) G 7000 SE 116, which abutts E face of G 7568, was empty; it seems G 7568 E and G 7000 SE 116 might be the same pit.
