  • Remarks
    Two limestone offering basins inscribed for the scribe Tjenti: 29-2-63 (= MFA 29.2323), 29-2-75 (= MFA 29.2326). Provenance: 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 (see 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.
