LOCATION This lintel was found by Pollock and Roberts among debris on the south slope of the mound that supports the South Building of the Hieroglyphic Group. Present location is unknown.

CONDITION Broken in two, with further losses at the edges of one fragment, which, while not seriously affecting the carved area of the underside, have almost obliterated one glyph block on the front edge. Otherwise the condition of the surface is good.

MATER1AL Limestone.

SHAPE The photographs suggest a welldressed block with parallel sides.

PHOTOGRAPHS Pollock.

CARVED AREAS Front and underside.

DRAWINGS Graham, based on photographs.

REMARKS The only available record of dimensions is found in Pollock's field notes (Peabody Museum Archives), but comparison of these figures with measurements taken from his photographs of the underside and edge of the lintel suggests that the width of the sculptured area, given there as 0.95 m, was erroneous.

DIMENSIONS

MW 0.61 m
HSc (underside) 0.52m
WSc (underside) 0.85 m
MTh 0.34m
Rel unknown
