LOCATION This lintel was found by Pollock and Roberts as they cleared debris from the South Building of the Hieroglyphic Group. Because the lintel lay near the north entrance it is assumed to have rested on Columns 5 and 6, thus spanning the central doorway. Present location is unknown (the dimensions quoted below come from Pollock's field notes, Peabody Museum Archives).

CONDITION Broken cleanly in two, the carved surface well preserved.

MATERIAL Limestone.

SHAPE The photograph indicates that the more or less parallel sides were not very accurately hewn.

CARVED AREAS Underside only.

PHOTOGRAPH Pollock.

DRAWING Graham, based on photographs.
