When these had been taken up, we saw a vertical line of gold hieroglyphics lying face down with fragments of decayed wood over them.
It seems to be the same as the vertical text 217 and 218 etc. but some signs have probably fallen down out of sight in both inscriptions.
There appears to be another vertical line on east and another on the walls forming a rectangle.
The wood (decayed fragments) was treated with celluloid solution. The next move is to take up the wood, 2) the hieroglyphs, 3) the large leg against the wall, 4) other large sheets of gold leaf under these-and thus expose the underlying inlays.
No trace of the king's name has yet been found. But the titles appear to refer to a king's daughter, a king's wife, a king's mother. I judge her the mother of Khufu, the wife of Sneferu, the daughter of Huni.
