  • Notes
    From excavations of George Reisner, 1925. Complete list of Hetepheres findspot numbers for these fragments is unkown, but includes at least HH_1711(4), HH_1711(13), and probably HH_1711(11); see numbers visible in photos HUMFA_B8528_NS and GEM_6368_001. Fits with EMC_JE_67752 (= HH_1711(12))? 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.
