Comments

According to Dreyer, personal communication, 2017, " We identified another label fragment of Narmer. There is not much left of the name but clearly there is a part of the interrupted facade with a vertical sign in the gap. The vessel sign with handles indicates imported oil. The fragment was found ca. 30m to the NE of Den’s tomb (T). "
