  • Notes
    From excavations of George Reisner, 1929. There seems to have been confusion about this object: it is listed in the JE as being HUMFA_29-3-320, but according to the Reisner expedition records this number belongs to a fragment of an alabaster sacred oils tablet. Likewise, the Reisner expedition object register entry for HUMFA_29-3-320 notes that it is EMC_JE_53838, but the JE lists this number as a faience amulet. It is unclear what the correct correspondence is between HUMFA field numbers and JE numbers.
