Location and orientation of the circumpolar hippo
Indicates the starting point and directionality of list or procession of figures
The list gives an approximate layout for how the decans, deities, cluster labels (x-nwt Xt), and decanal figures (in bold) are arranged. However, the only way of perceiving the complete layout and orthography of the labels is by consulting photographs, drawings, or the original. For conventions and abbreviations, see below the table.
The list is fragmentary but Neugebauer and Parker believe that it started with 17 knmw. They place the list in the Seti I C family.

The decan numbers and letters shown here are for the decan family AR2.
IP = inferior planet
Grey shading = damage
The number of star symbols accompanying the decans is also omitted here, as it is often impossible to tell to which decan the symbols refer. EAT3 deals with star symbols in some detail.
