- Curator's comments
- Some information about this object comes from an affixed label which states "alabaster head, plaque male, Sabaean.". There seems to be some confusion over the measurements for this object as the measurements in the register entry correspond to those of in the record card for big number 141547 and vice-versa. The appearance of "Sabaean" on the record card for 141547 but not in the corresponding register entry for 1985,0223.16 and the register entry for this object but not in the record card may suggest that there may be confusion between this object's details and those for 1985,0223.16 in general.
