The blocking of the entrance doorway at the bottom of the steps and leading
to the descending passage, show traces of two successive openings and re-closings
of a part of its surface: applied to the re-closed portions were
seal impressions of the type (H), whereas the impressions that covered the
untouched (original) part of the blocking of the doorway show repeatedly
the prenomen of Tut.ankh.Amen.
NOTE: Re impressions of the type (H) - whereever the upper part of these
impressions was sufficiently clear there was no sign of a cartouche above
the Anubis animal.
Upon the plaster of the original unharmed part of the blocking fifty-seven
seal impressions were visible at the time of the discovery. They proved to
be 13 impressions of seal (A), 17 of seal (B), 8 of seal (C), 9 of seal
(D), and 10 of seal (E). (1)
Upon the remaining portion of the second closing - originally a breach
about one third in size of the doorway and occupying the whole of the upper
southern corner - only seven seal impressions remained, and they were with
fair certainty of type (H).
Stamped upon the surface of the plaster covering the stones of the third
closing - covering a hole similarly situated as the first breach, but not
quite so large - were twenty-eight impressions of one kind and of type (H).
(1) Note required upon the grouping of these several seals.
