Location Context Title Context Description Description (Modern)
PG/800B This tomb chamber contained the remains of Queen Puabi, as identified by one of the cylinder seals on her body. Woolley associated it with the death pit above, to which he had assigned the designator PG/800, thus this chamber received the subletter B. Since the chamber floor is about 2.5 meters lower than the death pit floor, however, the two may actually be unrelated. (none)
