  • Notes
    Provenance uncertain. Provenance listed in Peabody Museum records and packing list HUMFA_PL1428 as G 2450 X. There is a shaft labeled "X" on plan HUMFA_EG000498, located between G 2391 and G 2450 (not shown on later plan HUMFA_EG023521). This shaft is referred to as G 2391 X on unpublished manuscript page HUMFA_GN2_K12_p176, and as G 2452 A on the sketch plan on diary page HUMFA_Vol.04.p.062. G 2452 A was originally numbered G 2450 Y (see photo HUMFA_C5215_NS); the "G 2450 X" on the packing list page could perhaps be a typo, and PMAE_59280 is the skeleton visible in photo HUMFA_C5298_NS, but this is far from certain.
