The location of the tomb with respect to the walls is different in this drawing to today. However [JRSAI, 1869-73] says the tomb is in NE corner (same as today). Maybe the tomb has been moved round.




Description of the tomb.
From pp.536-537 in [JRSAI, 1869-73].
This says that the inscription now at the top of the tomb used to be "In the floor beneath it".
It seems the tomb has been altered since this.
