Other Text

The final column is not labelled for the epagomenal days.

The last two cells of the final column contain the text "Total of those who are in their places, the gods of the sky, 36" (EAT 1, p 5)

Style The table appears between coffin texts - an unusual feature as the star tables usually take up the whole inner surface of the lid.  The table gives the impression of being "dark" because the dark wood is mostly exposed - the original light-coloured ground has only survived in a few places.

This is the most complete diagonal star table, closest to the “ideal” model described in EAT1. Even so, like all other type T tables, it lacks two ordinary decans (19 bAwy and 25 rmn Xry) in the main body and so has two occurences of the TmAt decans at the beginning of the beginning of the ordinary decans and just before the triangle.  However, T1 uniquely preserves rmn Xry in the list columns, giving weight to its place as one of the two missing decans.  T1 also lacks the final triangle decan L sAbw.  The horizontal strip for T1 begins with a large red dot, as seen on most other tables, and not a nfr symbol (Cockcroft & Symons, 2014).
