LOCATION This is the east jamb of the south doorway of the east chamber of the Initial Series Building. Although Maler's photograph of the doorway (Maler 1902, plate 4) appears to show part of the jamb projecting above the rubble, he did not pursue the clearance of rubble as far as this jamb. It remained for Pollock to liberate it from debris in 1935. Its present location is unknown.

CONDlTION Evidently the jamb proper was composed originally of two slabs, with the right-hand portion of the inscription on its side carved on the adjacent masonry blocks, in the same fashion as Jamb 1. Pollock found the lower slab and adjacent masonry blocks in situ, and apparently in good condition, but the entire upper portion was missing, except for one fragment.

MATERIAL Limestone.

SHAPE Apparently similar in conformation and workmanship to Jamb 1.

DIMENSIONS No record.

CARVED AREAS Face and outer (left) edge only.

PHOTOGRAPHS Pollock 1935.

DRAWINGS Face: von Euw; side: Graham. Based on photographs.
