This decan is present in all the T tables T1 to T12, but in no K tables.

In T1 to T9 a diagonal is complete from (1,10) to (10,1). In T10 there are two appearances in cells (3,8) and (5,6) which are on the same diagonal as the other tables. In T11 five of the eight "xnwy"s appear are on the diagonal from (1,8). In T12 the diagonal is again complete, but starting at (1,11) and ending at (11,1).

In the list columns it is present in T1 at (C1,9), T6 at (C1,10), and T6 and T8 at (C1,9).

The transliteration is uncertain (hence the inverted commas) as is its exact relationship to the decan xnwy which takes its place in the type K tables.  EAT1 suggests that this in fact is probably a different writing of the same decan name, providing the probable transliteration used here.
