Wooden label with hieratic inscription in black ink. Piece of cord still in tie hole. This apparently belonged to the papyrus sandals (see note f A.H.G).

(o) Collar band from a shirt of thick coarsely woven cloth of different coloured threads, borders at any rate were alternate bands of dark & light. This was applied to the top of the garment proper, which was of very fine weave, now almost disappeared. The band was open in front, and tied in a half bow, at its top edge with very fine cord. Width of band 3 cm. Neck opening 8.5 - 9.

This garment obviously that of a young child.

Treatment: Sprayed repeatedly with strong solution of celluloid in amylacetate.
