Notes

Like all other type T tables, this table 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. It also lacks the final triangle decan L sAbw.

* Symons (In Press): "There is some confusion over the coffin siglum for this table. Kahl (1993) has G2T throughout except on page 104 where it is designated G1T. However, both Willems (1988) and Zitman (2010) identify the coffin as G1T, belonging to the same owner as G2T."

** This catalogue number is directly from the Egyptian Museum, Turin, although we note that elsewhere it is also referenced as 15774. Neugebauer and Parker describe this coffin as "now perished" in EAT1, referencing de Buck (1935). However, it seems that Neugebauer and Parker mistakenly applied de Buck's G2T footnote ("Photographs only; the original has perished") to G1T instead. According to de Buck, G1T is the inner coffin and G2T is the side of the outer coffin - and both coffins belong to the same person and have the same provenance.
