Neugebauer and Parker (1960), Pages 14-15, Plates 14-15
Willems (1995) (contains a complete analysis of the textual program of the coffin, but uses Neugebauer and Parker's reading and analysis of the star table)
Cockcroft & Symons (2013) (updates Neugebauer and Parker's reading of the list columns)
Nubian Museum, Aswan; on display
CG 28127; JE 36418 (originally in the Egyptian Museum, Cairo)
|Columns||36 + 3|
|Pattern||Orderly except for the beginning of the upper left-hand quadrant.|
(R to L) Nut, Sahu & Meskhetiu, Sopdet, smd rsy & smd mHty, nTr DA pt & rmn Hry, tpy-a spd & imy-xt spd, Axwy & imy-xt Axwy, HAt xAw & pHwy xAw, xntt Hrt & xntt Xrt
No big red circle is present at the beginning of the offering formula.
|Other Text||"A coffin text follows" (EAT1, p 15)|
|Style||Unique: very cursive, executed in black only. No stars separating decan names, but a whole column of stars are placed before the vertical strip and another at the end of the table.|
Note 1: The cell (C3,10) marked with a * is written as a pHwy similar to the occurrences of pHwy in the date row. It is not a decan by itself; see Cockcroft & Symons (2013) for more details.
Note 2: The cell (C3,12) contains the only known occurrence of the decan HAt sAbw; see Cockcroft & Symons (2013) for more details.

This table preserves L sAbw, the twelfth triangle decan, in the list columns only. It is also the only known table to preserve M HAt sAbw (Cockcroft & Symons, 2013). However, the triangle is not well-listed, despite being well-represented in the main body of the table. 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.
This table is, with T6, one of only two diagonal star tables on public display in Egypt. It is the easier of the two to view as it is displayed standing upright on one of its long edges. Unfortunately, the star table is upside down.
