Remarks: Provenance and Date(s) attributed: Černý, BIFAO 41 (1942), 21-22, notes the fact that IFAO 0681, 0691, 0692, 0693, 0694, 0695 and 0696 are all of the same material, possibly with the same handwriting, all (except one, where missing on a lost fragment) have one hieratic sign on the reverse, and all date to the beginning of the 20th dyn. To the same group may belong O. Clere [1] and [2] and O. Gardiner [1] and [2]. Possibly these come from room III (with a drawing of Amen hotep pA nb dmi ) in house S.O. IV of Parahotep, see Bruyere, Rapport sur les fouilles de Deir El Medineh 1934-35 , III, 321-322.
