|later with the addition 'northern'|
Deity recorded on the White Chapel: Neit and Sobek
Note that the provinces 4 and 5 of Lower Egypt are named as southern and northern parts of the Neit province: it is possible that the inscription on the White Chapel should be read across the two provinces as a single entry 'Neit and Sobek of Sau (Sais)' - however, there is a dividing-line between the two, with 'Neit and Sobek' in province 4, and 'Sau' in province 5.
