  • Notes
    There has been some confusion as to the provenance of this object. C. Fisher diary, p. 40, describes stele of Ankh as being from G 3050. However the same diary, p. 54, lists fragments of stele G14 (=UPM_E13537) as being found in offering room of G 3031. Object register entry for G14 gives provenance as G 3031, but it is crossed out and replaced with "chamber 3, E side 3050". Fisher, Minor Cemetery, p. 149 no. 30 gives provenance as G 3050; however, caption for pl. 51 says "found in debris in offering room of G 3031."
