|Legend for Decans
|Decans that occur on this table
|Decans that do not occur on this table, but a space is left for them because they may have occurred on the ideal table
|Parts of the decan list that are missing owing to loss or damage
The inclusion of only three columns for the full decan list means that several cells contain more than one decan name. Like all other type T tables, it lacks two ordinary decans (19 bAwy and 25 rmn Xry) in the main body and so has two occurences of the TmAt decans at the beginning of the beginning of the ordinary decans and just before the triangle. Decan L sAbw only occurs in the epagomenal or list columns of the table.
This table is notable for belonging to a royal lady. It is also, with T8, one of only two diagonal star tables on public display in Egypt. This table is the more difficult to view as the coffin lid is merely raised by about five inches above the coffin.
