  • Notes
    From excavations of George Reisner, 1925. Originally registered as EMC_JE_52386a (= HH_1234, jar) and EMC_JE_52386b (=HH_1033, lid). Mistakenly listed in GEM records as HH_1238. 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.
