Sedment tomb 1506
date: First Intermediate Period (about 2000 BC)
disturbed grave/shaft of woman in a white painted coffin; the shaft/hole was about 3.0 m deep (Petrie/Brunton 1924: pl. XXXVII; Seidlmayer 1990: 329)
(for the selection of objects in the tomb compare: burial customs)
UC 18187 (90v)
pots not in the Petrie Museum: type 51k, 51n, 53k
arrows (?) UC 63168
Problem: The arrows are not mentioned in the publication, they
are not mentioned on the tomb cards.
There is therefore some doubt about their origin. A tomb number written on the paper seems to be 1506 (but see other arrows from tomb 1586).
