  • Remarks
    Not all alabaster models visible in image (14-11-184 = MFA 14.1729, 14-11-185 = MFA 14.1730, 14-11-186 = MFA 14.1731, 14-11-187 = MFA 14.1732, 14-11-190 = MFA 14.1733, 14-11-191 = MFA 14.1734, 14-11-193 = MFA 14.1735, 14-11-194 = MFA 14.1736, 14-11-195 = MFA 14.1737). Original OR entries attributed 14-11-182–14-11-186 to deposit E of coffin, 14-11-187–14-11-195 incorrectly to deposit W of coffin, but jar 14-11-187 or 14-11-188 and dishes 14-11-195 can be seen in this photo, suggesting all models attributed to deposit W of coffin probably belong to deposit on E. No deposit of alabaster models W of coffin mentioned in excavation diary entry (see Vol.08.p.057).
