Comments

According to Regulski 2010, when more than one seal impression appears on a clay stopper, the royal name provides the date for all other impressions since the cylinders were impressed when the clay was still wet.
UC.35684 has inscriptions 0090 (Narmer serekh) and 0200.
Kaplony's UC 6 = UC35684.
