1. Breasted in AR and Borchardt Ne-user-re, p. 72 make a [sHD] scribe, priest or other officer subordinate to one without the prefix [sHD]. Breasted translates it "Inferior" scribe, etc., and Borchardt "Unteroffizier". On the other hand Erman, Glossar, p. 117 translates "Aufseher" and Sethe, A.Z.55 (1918) p. 66 as "super-intendant" (cf. No. 4, notes 2). As this basin was not found in situ we have no certain archaeological evidence upon which to judge whether he held the greater or the lesser authority. If this Nofer-es---? is the Nofer-es-hoptep of No. 34, his position of "adorner of the King" he probably would have been of the higher rank.
