Zawyet el-Aryan, Graves Z 486-489. 1911: excavated by the Harvard University–Boston Museum of Fine Arts Expedition. The MFA sealing is the only fragment that came from Zawiyet el-Aryan.
The example from the Petrie excavation in Berlin was lost or destroyed in World War II.
Some objects have been impressed by more than one seal: UC.35684 has inscriptions 0090 and 0200. UC.23686 has inscriptions 0090 and 0098. UC.35693 has inscriptions 0090 and 0098.
Kaplony's UC 6 = UC35684; Kaplony's UC 3 = UC35686; Kaplony's UC 4 = UC35693.
