G 7232 A Pit E [sub-pit e = A IX]. The burial of Nesiptah was finally examined this afternoon. Only two more ushabtis were found, under the right femur, and the sex was apparently certain as female, judging from the great width of the pelvic opening.
Mr. Joseph Lindon Smith and his daughter arrived in camp this afternoon.

G 7214 F
[G 7214 F]: The Saitic limestone coffin of the intrusive burial in this tomb was explored today, having been first opened yesterday for photographs.
The body was prone on back, head slightly forward and turned a little to the right. From neck to feet was tightly swathed in a coarse linen garment, secured by a strip down center of front and by three strips from this around trunk at wide intervals. At the feet end this garment had a fine fringe.
The skull was clear of cloth and free of flesh. It was a very beautiful and fine form, and perfectly preserved. The "wisdom teeth" were partially grown through the jaws. All other teeth were perfect. No supraorbital ridge.
Round the neck could be seen a necklace of small carnelian beads on original thread and another of small red and blue beads alternating with occasional white discs, also intact. A scarab of greenish faience lay over the throat. Under the chin was a large [ILLUSTRATION] of ebony(?), to the left of the atlas bone lay another similar object of dark color. [ILLUSTRATION]
When the garment had been cut down the center and the edges tucked back on either side the body was revealed. It evidently belonged to a young girl of (?) 19 - 24 years old, not a mother. Very little flesh was preserved, the tendons of the knee attachment were visible clearly. Right hand lay along right side, left hand lay over the pelvis, which was very small and of thin bone. All the bones were somewhat thin in structure and delicate. The left shin was crossed over the right, the feet reached to the end of the coffin.
Over the head of the left femur was a tiny green glaze scarab, a scaraboid ram of greenish glaze lay inside the pelvis.
Length of body from top of skull to soles of feet 1.31.
Length of body from atlas bone to soles of feet 1.18.
Length of body from atlas bone to base of pelvis .51.
