・Macadam states that the determinative of the owner's name might be more correctly A1: the signs are far from clear (
04-082 in Macadam's Green file), but it seems that the Davies's drawing is correct (Cf.  the inventory # A.1922.673 preserved in the National Museums of Scotland).

One example was unearthed from TT 196 (Graefe 2003: Text p. 202; Taf. 112, Kat.501).
・The owner ascribed is identical to that of # 109. Borchardt etc. suggests that the owner of # 499 also is (Borchardt, Königsberger, and Ricke 1934 [ZÄS 70]: 31).
・A crack at the top of the central column suggests the seal has a hole there (01-096 in Davies's notebook and 04-078 in Macadam's Green file). His another cone # 109 also has a crack.

Mond, however, did not state the exact type clearly. Mond 1904 [ASAE 5] 101-101).

Remarks
・Macadam states 'The existence of this cone is doubtful...*snip*...
the resemblance to 226 (C 135) is very striking.
...*snip*...The number is retained, however, here, as being that of a published cone, in case after all such a cone does exist' (04-063 in Macadam's Green file).
・The text indicates that this cone was made during the Third Intermediate Period. If this understanding is correct, it is highly likely that the tomb it belongs to is situated at Asasif, where many other high officials at that time were buried.

Remarks
・Unknown examples of fragments of this cone were found in Ramesseum (01-098 in Davies's notebook).
・Davies wrote he may have seen a lintel of Kaemamun in a house near TT 39 (01-098 in Davies's notebook).
・There are two statues known to be of our Kaemamun
 and one of them, a statue group housed in Louvre (inv. no. 10.443), shows his second son who was the Aakheperreseneb (de Buck 1957-1958 [JEOL 15]).
・As de Buck states, it is interesting that the word 'Amen' in many of his items survived the reign of Akhenaten undamaged (de Buck 1957-1958 [JEOL 15]: 9-10).
・The owner ascribed is identical to those of # 246 and # 590.
・The ones housed in the British Museum (BM: EA 71401) and the Egyptian Museum in Cairo (JdE 56019) are bricks.

Translation: First lector-priest of Thutmose II justified, Nedjem justified.
Date: Hat. - T. III
Length: 26.0cm (Stewart 1986: 58)
Colours: --
Remarks
・52 examples were unearthed from TT 276 area (Gauthier 1919 [BIFAO 16]: 184). Four examples were unearthed at Armant (Drower and Myers 1940: Texts p. 101, Plates Pl. 107 no. 8).
・The owner ascribed is identical to those of # 193, # 361, and # 633/B.06
 because the design of the inscription is similar to those three, the name and the title of the owners correspond to each other. Vivó, however, thinks that the owner of # 361 is different from those of other cones since it has never been found at Nr. -286- area and the king's name is not Thutmose II but Thutmose I. He also considers 633/B.06 to be the same as 193 (Personal communication between Kento Zenihiro and him. 10 Nov. 2012).
・Gauthier, who discovered 34 examples of cone # 193 and 52 examples of cone # 232, purposely distinguished 'Aabau' from 'Nedjem'. This makes it difficult to suggest his translational error regarding these two names, which, however, do resemble each other in appearance.
・Scholars are divided about how to read these two names (Cf. Gabolde 1995 [SAGA 12]: 163).
・Interestingly, cones belonging to both Aabau and Nedjem (Cf. # 633/B.06) have been excavated at Armant. Petrie reported that he purchased both # 193 as well as # 232 (Stewart 1986: 59), which probably indicates an antique dealer had acquired a variety of different cones around the site of Nr. -286- and then sold them at Armant later.
 It indicates that the examples from Armant may have been originally from Nr. -286-.
・The fact that another cone of Nedjem (# 35) has found near Nr. -286- suggests an issue to be investigated in the future.
・Macadam suggested to read the king's name not
aA-xpr-n-ra (Thutmose II) but aA-xpr-kA-ra (Thutmose I. 04-034 in Macadam's Green file, 05-096 in his DALEX file 1, and 06-078 & 109 in his DALEX file 2. See also # 193).

Colours: The head and the half of the body is red (ROM: 993X2.58)
Remarks:
・One example was found in the Mond's hoard in TT 73 (
01-111 in Davies's notebook and 04-048 in Macadam's Green file). One example was found in TT 93 (01-111 in Davies's notebook and 04-048 in Macadam's Green file). One example was found in TT 349 (01-111 in Davies's notebook and 04-048 in Macadam's Green file). Unknown examples were unearthed at TT 47 (Kondo et al. 2014: 49 and 51).
・EMC has a statue probably of this owner (Legrain 1908: 47-48) and if this is so, Nakht was active during the reign of Thutmose I to Hatshepsut. 
・The same museum
 has a stela of this Nakht. The text inscribed on it states that his parents to have been Kemis and Sebeknakht, and wife, Senhotep (CG 34048. Lacau 1909: 82-84). This Kemis was the owner of # 207 (Kees 1960 [ZAS 85]: 45). MMA also has a stela which is for this family (Inv. # 17.2.6Hayes 1990: 172-173, Fig. 94). See Habachi 1968 for the genealogy of this family. Dewachter thought that Kemis may have been the same man as TT 398 Kamose called Nentawaeref whose cones were # 13, # 118 and # 119 (Dewachter 1984 [RdE 35]: 86-87)13's seal's inscription is, however, completely different from those of # 118 and # 119 and the examples of # 13 have been found far from TT 398. I think it is not too late to regard this Kemis to be identical with that Kamose after further evidences, such as the discovery of multiple examples around TT 398, will occur.
