Scope and content

-ʿAsâsîf (Asasif).
-Brick superstructures of tombs.
'These brick arches at Deir el Bahari have been supposed by some to be Coptic; but as they are directly connected with the brick court (222) around the mouth of a large tomb of Pharaonic times, they can hardly be later than that.
That they were built irrespective of the avenue of Deir el Bahari, only shews them to be as late as 26 dyn. at which time mummies were rudely packed into the royal chambers there. The bricks of 222, 221 & 203 are of the same size as the Ptolemaic bricks at Deir el Medineh (p 31).'
