  • Notes
    Listed in UPM object card as excavation number G36; however, object register entry for G36 does not match dimensions or provenance (G36 probably actually = UPM_E13542). Fisher, Minor Cemetery, p.153 interprets the offering table as the start of a name, Khaut[...]; however, this is almost certainly incorrect, and the lintel is inscribed for Nefersehetep alone.
