  • Notes
    There has been substantial confusion regarding the numbering of this object. EMC_JE_67695 is listed in the JE and packing lists HUMFA_PL127, HUMFA_PL128, and HUMFA_PL154 as Hetepheres findspot number HH_1178 (= HUMFA_34-4-68); however, this bowl is in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFAB_37.2693). EMC_JE_67695 is listed in Hetepheres publication (p. 65, fig. 61), drawing HUMFA_EG022119, and unpublished manuscript page HUMFA_GN2_K04_ChapXIa_p304 as HH_1045(3) (= HUMFA_34-4-64); but this bowl is also in the MFA (MFAB_37.2692). EMC_JE_67695 is actually probably HH_1047(57) (= HUMFA_34-4-66). Hetepheres findspot number HH_1047(57) also associated with pottery bowl HUMFA_34-4-40.
  • Remarks
    Field number 1047(57) also associated with pottery bowl 34-4-40.
