  • Department
    Harvard University-Boston Museum of Fine Arts Expedition
  • Subjects
    Western Cemetery: Site: Giza; View: G 1159
  • Date
    March 1904
  • Problems/Questions
    Problem: tomb identification unverified: no pit Z indicated on detail of cemetery map; elsewhere this is identified as G 1151 (also no Z associated with that tomb); could this be G 1201 Z ?; "add. masonry of G 1201" (deleted from description) is assumed to be facade reconstruction of G 1201 against which G 1159 abuts; "in pit" deleted from description because this looks like a chamber not a pit; no tomb ID in image
