  • Remarks
    See handwritten tomb cards by A.M. Lythgoe, where the tomb of Merib, G 2100-I (= Lepsius 24) is numbered G 2500. This number was later abandoned. Tomb cards (in order): EG014935, EG014934, EG014936, EG014937, EG014938. Based on Lythgoe's description, these flints are probably from shaft F of G 2100 (probably tomb of Sedit). Objects labeled by Lythgoe as G 2500/7 are called "alabaster fragments," (no measurements given) and were found at depth of 3.5 m, in NE corner of shaft. Apparently flints not recorded on the tomb cards were also labeled G 2500/7. Top row, center, flint (9.5 cm) labeled G 2500/1 (number not visible in photograph, but see tomb card EG014934), found at depth of 40 cm.
