  • Notes
    Hetepheres findspot number HH_1204 also associated with unregistered pottery neckless shoulder jar MFAB_37.2733. A large portion of Special Register section 7 (volumes 13-16) was originally misnumbered, with the object numbers following in sequence from section 1 volume 4; these numbers have thus been given EMC_SR_1 prefixes, despite being recorded in section 7.
