Remarks: Publication: a revised transcription by Černý, Notebook 101.51-52. A transliteration and translation of obverse 6-11 and reverse 6-11 by Goecke, Untersuchungen zu den "Torwachtern" von Deir el-Medina, unpublished Magisterarbeit (Munich 1996), 79. Terminology: the reading [...] pA di.w nA rmT pA 2r (obv. 3-4) by Černý, Notebook 101.51. Names, Titles: MnTw-r-HA.t=f (obv. ~2-3#) was initially read MnTw-Hr-HA.t=f by Černý, BiOr 19 (1962), 142a, 143b. The name is refered to as MnTw-HA.t=f in Černý, Community of Workmen , 143. The form MnTw-r-HA.t=f was proven the correct reading by Janssen, JEA 53 (1967), 163-164. After having first thought to have discerned the name 2nsw-m-Hb (obv. 8) written in very pale ink, 2nsw-ms appeared to be a more likely reading to Černý, Community of Workmen , 168 note 1.
