  • Notes
    From excavations of George Reisner, 1925. Misidentified in JE as Hetepheres findspot number HH_1145. 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.
