    Unpublished Reisner Hearst report attributes this object to G 1233; despite discrepancy in dates between object photographs (C12001_OS and B12995_OS, dated 1904 and 1906) and Fisher's excavations (1915), this object definitely identified as University of Pennsylvania Museum, Philadelphia E 13540 (published by Fisher).
  • Problems/Questions
    Problem: how can architrave fragment be excavated in 1915 in Fisher's minor cemetery when Old Series object photos C12001 and B12995 date to 1904 or 1906 and list object's findspot as tomb G 1233; unpublished Reisner Hearst report includes this photo as findspot for lintel fragment definitely identified as University of Pennsylvania Museum, Philadelphia E 13540 // stela corrected to read lintel
