- Curator's comments
There is much confusion in the records for EA 1078-80. Both the Trustees' Minutes and the EEF lists give 'three blocks of Nectanebo', but they were not apparently written in the register
books at the time (?), but were added to vol 4 p 113 by MLB in 1985.

Naville, Bubastis, pl.XLVII E [only partially drawn]. Reconstruction of naos (problematic) in Van Siclen, Fs Goedicke: 321-32.
Part of same monument as EA 1005, 1078 & 1079, and a block seen at Sotheby's (New York, June 4, 1998). Cairo CG 70016 may also be part of this naos.
