This table is the most atypical of the type T family as it is the only table to contain decans 1a wSAti, 1b bkAti (spliting the usual wSAt bkAt into two decans and therefore inserting one extra decan into the T list), and 12a smd (as a direct substitute for, and perhaps alternate writing of, smd srt). However, it lacks the usual two ordinary decans (19 bAwy and 25 rmn Xry) in the main body and the final triangle, which is consistent with the other T-type tables. As the table is only 21 columns long, it is impossible to say what would happen at the end of the ordinary decans.  It is also impossible to say whether the spliting of wSAt bkAt was a copying error or an intentional modification of the decan list.

* We thank Jim Ritter for determining the correct acquisition number and location of this coffin.  This coffin is not E 12036 (as reported in many other publications including Zitman (2010)).  E 12036 is actually S4Ly, which has no internal decoration and therefore no star table.
