    Eight baskets of potsherds registered as HUMFA_33-1-59; of these, nine bowls with recurved rims and four bent-sided bowls registered as HUMFA_33-1-59c. One bowl (restored) accessioned as MFA 37.2719 [this is probably either c(4)a or c(4)b]. Other bowls (some repaired, incomplete) MFA owned (unaccessioned). One bowl [c(2)a] in collection of Egyptian Museum, Cairo, EMC_JE_67614. One bent-sided bowl with thickened rim included under HUMFA_33-1-59c in object register page; this seems to be the bowl referred to elsewhere (see packing lists) as HUMFA_33-1-59f [designation f not used in object register], and is probably the one seen in photo HUMFA_B8705_NS, 4/1.
