Scope and content

Notebook which has been labelled during previous archival processing 'Shabtis and Figures of gods' containing descriptive notes, drawings and copies of inscriptions on shabtis and other figures. The notes appear to have been written around the same time so it is possible the objects are part of one collection.

The reference PEN/G.XIX/N.A on the front of this notebook is incorrect and the reference PEN/G.XXX/N.E has been written on the first page.

This notebook was previously in a box labelled, during previous archival processing, 'Objects'.
