1. Notes

Fragment of ivory stained green: - ? the lower part of an ankh.

Fragment of turquoise blue glass from inlay.

The colour of the stained ivory and the blue glass in perfect condition. Far more so than any found in the tomb.

Fragments of clay seals from packages (apparently of linen) that enclosed objects. One imagines the contents of these packages contained objects of value: else why were they stolen.

Nat. Size

Fragment of glass vessel - chevron pattern.

Small greenish blue glazed steatite scarab bearing the prenomen of Thothmes III.

Some pieces of resin.

Some small stoppers for stone jars.

The pieces of linen were also in perfect condition which is of interest when compared with the condition of the textiles from within the tomb.
