Comments

According to Regulski 2010, when more than one seal impression appears on a clay stopper, the royal name among them provides the date for all other impressions, because the cylinders were impressed when the clay was still wet.
UC.23686 has inscriptions 0090 and 0098. UC.35693 has inscriptions 0090 and 0098.
Kaplony's UC 4 = UC35693; Kaplony's UC 22 = UC35695; Kaplony's UC 278 = UC35697; Kaplony's UC 709 = UC35698; Kaplony's UC 280 = UC35699; Kaplony's UC 20 = UC35714.
