LOCATION This jamb was found in 1935 by Pollock and Roberts, buried in debris on the south slope of the substructure of the South Building of the Hieroglyphic Group, near Jamb 8 and Lintel 4. Presumably all three pieces came from a southfacing doorway of a collapsed chamber that adjoined the known central chamber of the building. Present location is unknown.

CONDITION This jamb lacks its upper portion but includes the lower end of the inscription; it is uncertain whether the small upper fragment in the photograph fitted the lower portion. Erosion of the carved surface had been slight. The last glyph is incomplete, apparently owing to a fault in the stone.

MATERIAL Limestone.

SHAPE Unknown.

PHOTOGRAPH Pollock.

CARVED AREAS Outer (right) edge only.

DRAWING Graham, based on photograph.
