  • Notes
    According to Reisner [GN2_K13_ApxB2_p011b] 24-12-1184 was found with "a large fragment which probably fits with it. These show a seated figure probably cleaning a bird." This "large fragment" seems to be unnumbered, but appears with 24-12-1183 and 24-12-1184 in Simpson's The Mastabas of Kawab, Khafkhufu I and II, fig. 11d. It appears again in Pl. VIa with 24-12-1183, where it is mislabeled 24-12-1184.
