Woolley duplicated 7140, so the plaque was left as U.7140, and the Vase was left as U.7140A as Woolley designated. A tablet was later added to this U.number, and is designated B. Objects are otherwise unrelated. : 1

1,260 beads found with U.456, strung randomly into 15 strings (a-h, j-p): 1
2 strings of beads have been created out of the long chain listed on the catalog card. They have been divided into .1 and .2. : 2
30-12-345.2 is likely not a separately collected spear point but rather part of a spear shaft, possibly the same spear as the point 30-12-345.1 which is logged as U.12488A: 1
30-12-432F relates to the center of the tray, 30-12-432E relates to the outsides of the tray. These have now been joined. : 1

37of 44 beads in photo 50 must be without the 7gold beads unstrung : 1
7795D is five fragments in various museums. Photo for 7795S shows a fragment of sub-letter D.: 1
8 of the 15 lapis ball beads of U.8012 (4 plain spheres and 4 ribbed spheres) are strung with some of the carnelian beads of U.8011 in the Penn Museum B16811. The other 9 beads must have been allocated to another museum.: 1
8806A was joined to 8806G. : 2
A and B are fragments of the same tablet, which is not identical to the original U number.: 3
A is three oval bowls, B is the larger Hemispherical Bowl, C is the smaller hemispherical bowl, and D is the remaining oval bowl. A is three bowls because they are stuck together by corrosion. : 3
A Jar is referenced with this U number in UE 9 p.96 (type 124). No museum number. "U.6750 (glazed white with a yellow band) from the Persian level of E-hur-sag.. The type seems to revive one in use in the Larsa period" Possibly added later to this U number or a mistake in the publication. : 1
A number of the lapis lazuli tesserae have a groove cut on the polished face with a rough surface below, suggesting they were cut with flint blades and split (Tosi & Piperno 1973).: 1
A silver tube was extensively examined shortly after excavation and apparently it became mixed up with another tube. Whether pieces from both are included in this lot is not clear, but in any case, the reported gold mouth piece of the drinking tube is not part of 30-12-536 and the drawing in UE2 of U.8605 (from PG/333) matches 30-12-536 in almost every detail.: 1
A-C are sets of 3 tumblers oxidized onto one another. D is a set of 4. : 4
A-G, but there are unknown quantities associated with C and G. G has been subdivided into different numbers depending on museum subdivisions. UPM number 31-17-352 has 21 subdivisions. BM lists 16 objects associated with this number. Divisions unverified (DU).: 1
According to 1923 distribution list, this object is 3 pieces of metal rings or chain, sent to UPM: 1
according to distribution list 1923, this object is "Bowl - useless - Gone to Powder": 2
according to distribution list 1923, this object was "vessel in very bad condition. (thrown away)": 1
According to field card, this object belongs to PG/1558.: 1
According to Jacobsen (1953: Review of UET III published in AJA 57:125-128) the large number of tablets originally given the single number U.7809 in the field were separated by Legrain and given new U numbers from between seasons, numbers not originally assigned but repurposed later. These numbers are U.4930-4950, U.7285-8 and U.9361-9500.: 1
All of U8454 A-K is likely the remains of a game board and pieces all collected under the same IM number: IM 3896.: 10

Although Penn Museum records link this object, 31-43-108, to the field number U.16239H, the object does not match the drawing or measurements on the field card.: 1
Although Woolley initially stated that the covering tumbler was silver, it is almost certainly lead as is the case in all other examples of this type. The clay jar is in the British Museum but the lead tumbler is not seen, perhaps not collected due to its poor condition.: 2
Although Woolley states that the fragments appeared to make up only a small portion of the pot, the form has been reconstructed from the sherds at UPM and is a squat spouted jar.: 1
anything that covers clay to give a different surface, texture, color, but is not as fluid as slip or paint.: 1

Aubrey Baadsgaard matched with U.12416 however the catalog card does not mention this object. : 1
Aubrey Baadsgaard matches with U.17806, however the string of beads listed on that catalog card are in the Penn Museum. : 1
B does not look pierced, possibly corrosion has covered the holes. : 1
B number re-assigned as Date Number: 1
B16570 is a cast of the object located in the UPM Museum: 1
B16903 had been associated with U.7503, but In a letter to Legrain dated Nov 28, 1935, Woolley says that cylinder seal U.7503 is in Baghdad. He asks whether the U number is misread on Penn's seal and should be U.7583, which is indeed the case.: 1
Baadsgaard's dissertation does not give a U number for the object but lists it as coming from PG/800.: 1
Because of the longitudinal piercing, this is unlikely to be a weight; however, it may have once been one and been reused, and its potential association with U.16429 would indicate it had been thought of or cataloged as a weight at one point.: 1
below Kuri-Galzu floor, E-nun-mah from typed transcript: 1
Birmingham claims this U number, listed as hair ornaments.: 1
Birmingham logs this artifact as a spindle whorl. Woolley logged it as a roundel because the hole did not pierce the object entirely.: 1
BM Data linked object with 1928,1009.364. B16765, is the head and part of the body of the pin, 1928,1009.364 is a fragment of the midsection of the pin. Both could be part of this U number. : 1
BM Data linked object with U.8016. This U number linked with B16765, which is the head and part of the body of the pin. Both could be part of this U number. : 1
BM data linked this object with U.3035. Object not listed on catalog card.: 1
BM Data links these objects with U.8722 and U.8493. Both are silver rings. None of the other objects are listed on the catalog cards.: 1
BM Data links this object to U.9336. This object is not mentioned on the catalog card.: 1
BM data links this object with U.8396. Not mentioned on catalog card.: 1
BM data matched with U.15585. This object not mentioned on Catalog Card.: 1
BM data matches these objects to U.16322, U.16699, and U.16773. All these are groups of miniature copper weapons. It is unknown which one matches this group. : 1
Both B numbers refer to same object, duplication of B numbers when brought in. [Note: Woolley listed this object as B16919 in the UE2 catalog. MD 3/27/97].: 1
Bracelets and beads stuck together, given one museum number, therefore not subdivided. : 1
British Museum accession number 128456 is an ovoid hematite weight of the correct length to be U.16429F, reported at 40.985 grams; the object was on loan to Manchester when weights were examined.: 1
British Museum accession number 128460 is also an ovoid with three crude lines incised and is listed as U.16429 in their records. It is a tan color, however, and does not match the drawing as closely as Penn Museum 31-43-114 which is listed in records as U.16429M.: 1
British Museum appears to have some of these beads, accession numbers 123142 and 123147: 1
British Museum data associates this museum number with field number U.34, but there is no mention on the field catalogue card or in UE II. : 1
British Museum links u8633 with 120840, however, the number of objects is not specified.: 9
British Museum number 118572 might be this U number as it is a very small duck weight about the size of U.6257C. However, it is hematite rather than lapis and the field card specifically states that only A and B went to the expedition, so C must be in Iraq.: 1
British Museum records indicate this field number on this pin, but original field card does not mention it: 1
British Museum records Jawbone as belonging to this group. : 8
British Museum records list 1931,1010.158 as U.16932B, however, its measurements match more closely with U.16932A. That field number is reported at the Penn Museum, 31-43-93.: 1
British Museum records two accession numbers under this U number which they call a and b, both of which are carnelian.: 1
British Museum reports a copper ring as belonging to this group, does not appear on catalog card-- assigned as sub-letter F here.: 5

Catalog card lists diameter measurement as 160mm, however this item appears to be 16mm.: 1
Catalog card lists only one tablet, later registered tablets were added to this field number-- likely do not come from the same context.: 8
Catalog card lists up to H but more exist under 8810. Records assign letters to the rest. Sub-letters are confused across Oracc and other sources.: 21
Catalog card reports this item to be 160mm in diameter, however this seems to likely be an error. 16mm is more probable, considering that the ring is described as "small.": 1
Catalogue card says celts without being specific to number and there are at least 2 stone hoes/celts in the various museums with this field number written on them. No subletter is written on the objects themselves; they have been assigned in this database in the order they have been logged. : 2
Catalogue card states only that this object comes from TTG; Field card states TTF. UE2 places the object in PG580, which was mostly revealed in TTE. Woolley decided that this rein ring was in the dromos (entry ramp) to PG580, though he had little evidence of that.: 1
CBS register lists 8690 incorrectly-- has been struck out in CBS register. Object clearly bears u number 8650.: 1
CBS register lists no U number-- apparently never assigned one.: 1
CBS Register records an inscription, no inscription visible: 1
CDLI (following JCS 24, 093, 22) reports this tablet as U.3971 bis, but the number on the object is almost certainly U.3571. No museum number is given.: 1
CDLI (following Sollberger 1960, Iraq 22:77) lists this seal U.11670 as being in the Penn Museum, but there are no records of it ever having been there.: 1
CDLI lists this item in the British Museum, Oracc lists Irag Museum-- neither gives a number.: 1
CDLI lists this seal as in the Penn Museum, which it is not. Penn Museum has the copper pin from this group, not the seal. UE2 lists IM numbers 7588-7591 but it is unclear which are attached to which objects.: 1
CDLI lists U.9019 as an inscribed lapis cylinder seal. That, however, is actually U.9010.: 2

Found with card that reads: Copper Spearhead Ur The beginning of copperwork in Mesopotamia is about 4100 B.C. At first to shape an object the cold metal was hammered. Later on the metal was heated and then hammered into shape. Natural copper ore was soon used up; from then on copper compounds were imported. These were melted by heating with charcoal in order to remove the impurities. By 2500 B.C. copperwork in Mesopotamia had advanced to the pouring of the melted copper into many piece molds. This copper spearhead once fitted into a wood handle. Typical copper objects produced in Mesopotamia were pins, awls, projectile points, celts, axes, saws, daggers with riveted handles, socketed spears, and arrowhead.: 1

In a letter to Legrain dated Nov 28, 1935, Woolley says that this cylinder seal U.7503 is in Baghdad and that it is wrongly associated with B16903. He asks whether the U number is misread on Penn's seal and should be U.7583: 1

Is linked with U.10586 in BM catalog, but no ring mentioned. 10586F is lined with BM. 1928,1010.154. : 1
It has been suggested that Penn Museum nr. B17617 (two 'unfinished beads') might belong to this U number sequence. This cannot be true since U.14003 was recorded in the field in season 8 but B17617 was received in the previous year.: 3
It is not clear whether Penn Museum B16811 represents all 4 rows of carnelian and lapis beads reported as U.8011 or only one of them. Since one of the rows in the field notes is reported as gold and lapis, and since B16805 is also reported as U.8011, it seems unlikely and thus all four rows have been separated into sub-letters in this database.: 4
It is unclear how this object was divided by Woolley, although he lists A,B,C,D, and E objects, he only describes E individually (as 3 objects). Furthermore, there is a later note on the catalog card identifying the material as shell, though this is not reflected in the typed transcript. Divisions checked (DC). : 1
It is unclear the total number of bracelets, Wooley indicated 2 before cleaning.: 1
It is unclear which object in Woolley's card this is; it needs to be re-examined as U.12771H is accounted for.: 1
Item does not appear on 9165 card, however UE II confirms its appearance in pg/535 and later assigned U Number and sub-letter.: 1

Length and width measurements match with field records, but weight is substantially different. Likely mis-recorded or mis-weighed in the field data.: 1
Length and width measurements match, but weight is substantially less on field card. British Museum records clearly link this object, 1931,1010.169, to the field number U.16229V; field measurement of weight must have been mis-recorded.: 1

Many field numbers were duplicated accidentally, with the duplicates typically assigned to tablets (Jacobsen AJA 57:128). When the addition of items to a U number was not intentionally done in the field, the duplicates have been given the subletter A in this database while the original object from the catalog card retains the number without subletter.: 2
Many pieces involved in U9787, Woolley only describes each briefly. Penn Museum number contains at least one of these pieces. Multiple measurements indicate many pieces, however full research has not been conducted.: 1
Matched with 1929,1017.557 as well, and subdivided [.1-.2]. The blade is in the Penn Museum (30-12-297) the haft is in the British Museum (1929,1017.557). If you add the measurements together, they are very close to Woolley's measurements. : 1

May be Nicholson Museum NM35.100.1. This is a redware sherd of a bowl marked with what they interpret as U 1533 B, but it does not match U.1533 and is likely a part of this redware bowl U.15338.: 1
Michael Müller-Karpe, Prähistorische Bronzefunde (Munich: C.H. Beck, 1983), No.305, p.62, pl.32 reports this as having been IM 3653 and being found in PG/67 currently in the Nasiriyeh Museum; the U number must have been confused in that volume as it only reports metal vases and Woolley shows U.8083 as being frit beads: 1

Mueller-Karpe assigned U. 10452 to this object, however, there is no evidence for this.: 1
Muller-Karpe lists this object as part of U. 12433, however, he also notes that neither this catalog number nor grave description includes a description of a metal vessel, making this assignment suspect.: 1

No catalog card exists for this object: U.3400-U.4929 [possibly an error for U.3400-U.3989 since little evidence for tablets with numbers after U.3989 exists] fell unassigned between seasons 3 and 4. They were later used for tablets found in Season 3 in areas PD, TTB, and ES (Jacobsen AJA 57:128).: 1

Object B17472 may never have received a U Number, closest match is this U 9076.: 1
Object too fragmentary to measure without restoration. Two largest contiguous fragments were at 130mm across, this was not a full diameter, but is not inconsistent with Woolley's measures. The spout also matches description. Handle not present in object observed, but the markings on the bag indicate it is 1 of 2 bags, presumably the other has the handle? Find handle to confirm. Wolley handle length added to diameter of bowl to get total length. Seen - 11/13: 1
Object was separated from it's B number, when it was discovered, it was given the 98-9-61 number. Based on measurements and description I believe these are the same object, and correlates to this U number. : 1

Penn Museum accession records list 31-43-104 as U.16429R, however, its measurements and description fit with U.16429Q.: 1
Penn Museum accession records list 31-43-116 as U.15429R, and on the digital Penn database it is listed as U.16429F. U.15429R does not exist and 16429F is polished hematite. The object measurements and description fit with U.16429R.: 1
Penn Museum has given separate accession numbers to the two pieces of one seal listed in the catalogue card; divided into A and B subletters of the field number here to cover the two separated objects in the museum.: 2
Penn Museum records indicate 31-43-102 is the field number U.16229M, however, the measurements are substantially different from those on the field card more similar to U.16329H.: 1
Penn Museum records state that the object B17551 comes from PG/789, but the principal rein ring from that grave is accounted for and is made of silver. B17551 has an outer appearance of silver but has tested as copper and its form matches the drawing of the PG/580 rein ring U.9324.: 1
Penn records associate this number with U8106 (field number on object), though measurements don't match.: 1

The length measurement matches with possible weight 31-16-504 in the Penn Museum; however, the material type does not and thus the object now in the Penn Museum may never have received a field number.: 1
The length measurement matches with weight U.16421B; however, the material type does not and thus the object now in the Penn Museum may never have received a field number.: 1
The box it is located in has this number, another spear head has this number written on it, this spearhead has no number written on it. : 1
The brick bears a Lipit-Ishtar inscription; no U number known. Though at one point it was thought to be U.2880, that group of bricks bears a Shulgi inscription.: 1
The British Museum records this object as coming from both EH and Diqdiqqeh. Field card points to Diqdiqqeh, later information from the British Museum records EH and Diqdiqqeh.: 1
The British Museum reports that this object was found in area AH and quotes: "picked from pile of rubble, possibly from higher (neo-Babylonian) level, in street of Larsa period". No direct reference to the quote is given and the object was accessioned in 1963.: 1
The British Museum shows this object as coming from both EH and Diqdiqqeh. Woolley's cards and publication show Diqdiqqeh, modern British information show BO from EH.: 1
The British Museum's ram is A based onfield photographs and the publication. : 1
The catalog card for this object was relabeled as U.16269 for some reason, but the object is tagged as U.16558 in field photograph 1904.: 1
The connection between this field number and this museum number is not absolute. The head of this piece 31-43-389 is nearly identical to 31-43-387, which is U.16953. Woolley placed an A on that card but did not fill in B or further. Still, he likely meant that there were other examples of this figurine and that he was intending to add more to it, therefore it may be that 31-43-389 is another example of U.16953. The A example was located in Diqdiqqeh, but even if this example is B, we cannot be certain it too comes from Diqdiqqeh.: 1
The field catalogue card describes only one door socket from L.12 (later room A.27). This door socket is mentioned for this room on p.49 of UE VII. There is, however, a later added note on the card that says "2 to B, 1 to E"; which means that there were three such door sockets (hence A, B, C in this database), two of which went to Baghdad in the division and one that went to the Expedition (either London or Philadelphia). The two Iraq Museum numbers are listed in UE VII as 1147 and 1148, one found in room A.27, the other in room A.2 of the Giparu. The third door socket's museum number and find location are not currently known.: 3
The following seal impressions have been completely destroyed: U.9310, U.9321, U.9315 and U.9298 (others may be involved) and rested in a single pile. This is according to a letter dated 5 May 1966 From R.R.B Kearton to R.H. Dyson, Jr. regarding damage due to storage under the auditorium in humid and inadequate conditions.: 4
The group with this U number in the Penn Museum shows beads and copper wire pieces; the field card does not mention copper wire.: 1
The lead cup is stuck to the remains of the clay spouted vase. They remain as one number because they have not been separated.: 1
The location PG/32 in this case is not Private Grave 32, but the private graves excavated early in the year 1932. Pg.32/36 = the 36th grave in that year.: 3
The Nicholson Museum associates this field number U.862 with NM35.41 and NM35.42, but their photos show the number written on NM35.40: 1
The Nicholson Museum claims this field number (U.19715) as NM35.37.2 and that object is a stone bowl but its measurements are larger than those reported on the field card and the number cannot be seen on the object. The Penn Museum stone bowl 35-1-563 matches the measurements but it too does not have a clear field number written on it.: 1
The Nicholson Museum claims this U number as NM35-29, but that object is an Old Babylonian clay goblet, which does not match the field card. They also claim this number on a broken cone, but that cone has the number U.862 written on it.: 1
The Nicholson Museum reports this object as U.14130, but the object does not match that field number. The number written on the object is difficult to read and the object matches instead U.14280.: 1
The number on the objects appears to be U.13008, not U.13009: 1
The object 31-43-227 is recorded in the Penn Museum as U.16981; however, it is a hair ring apparently round in section that does not appear to match the original description of U.16981: 1
The object is marked U.2788 but that field number is assigned to a clay pot from Diqdiqqeh, not a model boat. The object itself is a clear match for U.3169 based on the 1:2 drawing on the field card. : 1
The photographed object (1930,1213.316) is a glazed pot that cannot be the vessel described (and drawn) in Woolley's field card, as it is much too late in date. The field card and find spot describe an Ubaid pot; the photographed object is a Neo-Babylonian or Persian pot. British Museum database holds a question mark after the field number designation.: 1
The piece is marked with 13588, so an excavation inventory number should be meant. With 13588 No. 170, however, is also labeled. Which of the two vessels labeled properly, can not decide.: 1
the piece was not identified by anyone (translation?): 1
The pin 30-12-552 in the Penn Museum is similar in size and description to U.12380X but is not confirmed to be this object. The CBS record does not give the U number or grave number of this pin and later records suggest it might be from PG/1068. This would make it U.11552 whose description is very good for this pin, but which is reported as being in the Iraq Museum. Because the rest of the objects in the sequence 30-12-552 through 30-12-558 all seem to have come from Body 61 in PG/1237, the pin is here listed from that location.: 1
The previous card also has this U number and reads "Stone Bowl, Coarse Limestone JN 6b. Destroyed, This no. is now given to lamp from JNG 210. See next card. ": 1
The publication (UE4) indicates this U number is in Philadelphia but does not list the accession number. 31-17-358 has a reconstructed rim that is higher than that in the drawing on the field card, but otherwise is a good match. : 1
The tube indicated on the field card was examined and cleaned in the Penn Museum not long after excavation and found to be parts of a flute. The flute in question is published in UE2 in 1934 and several archival documents discuss the object. As seen in the archival drawings and descriptions, it is clearly Penn Museum number 30-12-536, which became mixed up with a drinking tube from PG/1054 (U.11913).: 1
The U number sub-divided based on multiple museum numbers. : 5
There are three bricks with field number U.2880 in the Penn Museum; on the catalogue card only one is said to be from Diqdiqqeh but it is not clear which one. Arbitrarily set to the final brick, the handwritten inscription, logged in this database as U.2880C: 3
There are two British Museum objects with very similar accession numbers 1933,1013.249 and 1933,1013.249a. The 'a' example has been restored from sherds and appears to be the one Woolley refers to in his field number U.18606. The other spouted jar must be one that did not receive a field number.: 2
There are two museum numbers for this necklace, hence the .1 and .2: 2
There are two separate tablets with the U number U.7097. The tablet in Iraq is labeled A, and the tablet in the British Museum is labeled B. : 2
There are weights in British Museum records that are associated with the field number U.16429 but for which no field cards exist. Perceived as duplicates, Woolley frequently gathered together similar objects (especially ones brought in by workers from outside Ur) under one number and it could well be that he assigned more weights to this field number than he recorded.: 4
There is a mistake on the field card for G126A; It clearly says that U.16682 was found in this grave, but it is meant to read U.16683. G126A is a Larsa period grave with carnelian beads (U.16683), while G115 is a Neo_Babylonian grave with glass beads (U.16682).: 2
There is a socketed axe head in the Nicholson Museum (NM.35.9.1) reported as bearing the field number U.14207, but that number is not an axe. Instead, the number likely reads U.14267 and is actually this axe. The Penn Museum object does not quite match the measurements and the field number is not on the object; the Nicholson has not reported their object's measurements.: 1
There is a suggestion in British Museum records that 128449 may be U.16412A; however, this is not certain. The length measure is very close, but there is nothing more to go on.: 1
There is no field card for U.15592A. It seems more likely that this 'kettle' is U.15556, since that item is a badly broken spouted pot of this very type and comes from PFG/Z, a grave for which UPM received most other pots and the entire skeleton. But the spout on that example is said to be missing.: 1
These are fragments of multiple vessels that had been corroded together but are not matched to any particular vessel. Some have been found to belong to the copper tray and have been removed from this group. All likely belong to one of the vessels in the group U.12485: 1
Thickness from 9mm to 1mm at tapered end. : 1
This field number was repeated in Woolley's catalogue three times, once as U.14442, clay pot, once as U.14442a, clay vase, and once as U.14442A, stone bowl (now assigned U.14442B for clarity). It is the latter that is most likely Birmingham Museum number 1962A2543: 1
This is a foundation figure and foundation tablet that is in the Oriental Institute at the University of Chicago, registration number A29804. Its field number is not listed but it is said to have been found in the Rim Sin Enki Temple (RS).: 1
This is probably a conglomerate restringing of beads from two contexts: The lapis beads are probably part of U.34B, while the gold bead seems to have no connected U number but to have come from the general hoard of late jewelry found in TTB that included pieces like U.458: 2
This is the same figurine type as U.646: 1
This item is a different shape than others, Muller-Karpe indicates that it is insecure in IM records, however, Woolley lists it among 10052 in UE II.: 1
This object apparently does not exist. There are two U.16268 cards, so one of those groups was probably meant to be U.16269. This card, however, goes with the object U.16558, according to the field photograph of that cylinder seal, photo number 1904.: 1
This object is associated with U.17223, but not listed on catalog card. Associated based on similar shape.: 1
This object is listed in the Nicholson Museum as U.18069 but the object does not match that figurine. The field number on the object is difficult to read but the object and number most closely resemble U.18089: 1
This object looks much like a mace head, as Woolley originally recorded it, but actually appears to be a stone vase as later recorded.: 1
This object would have had to have been held over for some time in the field if it came in 1935.: 1
This seal impression has been partially destroyed. This is according to a letter dated 5 May 1966 From R.R.B Kearton to R.H. Dyson, Jr. regarding damage due to storage under the auditorium in humid and inadequate conditions.: 1
This tablet has been given the primary sub-letter A because its museum number is the one listed in UE7 as being this tablet U.13009: 1
This U number is listed both in the Birmingham Museum and in the Penn Museum. It is currently unclear which is the bowl Woolley numbered: they appear to be the same type and approximately the same size, though the Penn example is somewhat shorter: 1
This U number is one of the numbers left blank between seasons, and as such these tablets were given this number after the season. This is why we only have a typed transcript and the card itself is missing. : 6
This UNumber originally linked to the BM Registration Number 1928,1010.145 and BM Number 121461, however these numbers do not link to Merlin. It now instead links to the fourth UPM silver bowl found in Puabi's grave.: 1
Three possible matches based on searches. 7857, 8179, 8541. Description, material, date all match, but measurements are a bit off as well as lack of drawings. : 1
Two notes on catalog card: Vol IV and Not included in Vol. IV, presumably the latter note was later. Divisions checked (DC). : 1

U.1439 has been reported at both BM and UPM. Unclear if A and B are separate objects, mis-recorded at one institution or the other. Division maintained in current database until objects can be verified.: 2
U.16239 field records frequently mention weight in GRS (apparently meaning grams, not grains in this case) but they rarely match with modern weighings of the objects. It is unclear how Woolley obtained these weight measurements; for most weights he did not record them. Even descriptions are frequently out, particularly material type. Perhaps these weights became rather mixed and separated from their actual sub-letters, but other candidates for the weight in question are typically not found.: 1
U.18612 is written on the back of this figurine, but this artifact is much smaller than the field card states. The figurine is the same type as U.18612, but a different example. Another field number U.3014(?) is also written on the object, but crossed out and that artifact field card does not match this example either.: 1
U.22122 was erroneously listed as the field number. When looking at the card, it was clear that 22122 was a field photograph number, and that no field number was recorded. by looking at the publications, it was clear this piece was U.16794, published in UE X: 579. [2012]: 1
U.55 is incorrectly described as a silver earring in UE II, 524: 1
U.7074 was accidentally duplicated in the field, with two catalog cards referring to the same number. The first card is here given no subletter (U.7074) while the second is given subletter A (U.7074A). The number was again duplicated after the season for a tablet, which is here given the subletter B.: 3
U.7075 was accidentally duplicated in the field, with two catalog cards referring to the same number. The first card is here given no subletter (U.7074) while the second is given subletter A (U.7074A). The number was again duplicated after the season for a tablet, which is here given the subletter B.
