DateRamesside (Redford 2006: 102)
Length: --
Colours: Blue (Pellegrini 1902: 153)
Remarks
・Unknown examples of this type or # 588 were discovered at TT 188. Also, one or two of Mahu's cones were also found in Tomb 192 (Davies 1923c: 136). One example was found in TT 49 (
01-284 in Davies's notebook). Unknown examples were found in TT 55 (? Illegible. Ibid.). 13 examples of this cone or # 588 were unearthed from TT 188 (Redford 1995 [KMT ((6)1)]: 68, 70). A total of 33 exampes of this cone and 588 were unearthed from TT 188 and its environs (Redford 2006: 123, 130, 141, 145, 148, 154, 158).
・The owner ascribed is identical to that of # 588.
・Index A in Davies & Macadam’s catalogue introduces the title of the owner as sAwty-pr-HD, and the name (x?)nsw but index B in the same book does his title as sAwty pr-HD n nsw, and the name (m)H.

・A. Redford insists the owner's tomb as Nr. -49- (Redford 2006: 102). One of the reason for this is that a fragment of a statue for Mahu and his wife Maita was found there (Ibid.: 221-222.)
・A tomb which may belong to this Mahu was also found in Saqqara by Loret in 1898-1899 but it is now lost (PM III 2: 556).

・According to Davies, # 269 of Daressy's catalogue was wrongly drawn and in fact it seems to be the same as this cone (Davies MSS in the Griffith Institute).

One example was found by the Metropolitan Museum of Art below TT 121 (= in or near TT 252? 01-284 in Davies's notebook). 13 examples of this cone or # 587 were unearthed from TT 188 (Redford 1995 [KMT ((6)1)]: 68, 70).

Translation: Seal-bearer of the king of Lower Egypt, fourth prophet of Amun, Kaemamun justified, his son, second prophet of Thutmose III, Eskedenu.
DateA. II (de Buck 1957-1958 [JEOL 15]: 9). 
Length: 26 cm (LM: 16.4.61.114)
Colours: Brown (HM: GLAHM D.1925.64)
Remarks
・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 # 228 and # 246.
・This seal impression might have been stamped only on the pyramids or the prisms, not on the cones (Cf. HM: GLAHM D.1925.64; MMA: 90.6.252; PeM: UC37975). This may also be true for cones # 341439592, and # 599.

Translation: Praising Amunre when rising in the east by revered one, standard-bearer (of the boat) 'Meryamun', praised one of the good god, hereditary noble, first king's son of Amun in the west, follower of Kamutef, wab-priest, Aamy, justified before Osiris.
Date: T. III – A. II
Length: --
Colours: --
Remarks
One example was found by Fisher at TT 286 (cf. the object card for the inv. no. 1664/29-86-698 housed in the Penn Museum)One example was unearthed at the monastery at Deir el-Bakhit in Dra Abul Naga (Kruck 2012: 137).
・Characters of the Late Period, such as a worshipping figure and the sentence starting with the dwA-sign, appear on this cone. The title 'standard-bearer (of the boat) 'Meryamun'', however, is also held by Nebamun of TT 90 (D. & M. # 398) who was active during the reign of Thutmose IV – Amunhotep III. Considering that he was doing the same work in the same boat as Nebamun, it is highly possible that Aamy was a contemporary. At that date, Ramose (Aamy) of TT 94 is only a candidate, for he was active during the reign of Thutmose III - Amunhotep II. The inscription from his tomb indicates that he was 'TAy-xw Hr wnmj (fan-bearer at the right of the king)' and 'Hsy n nTr nfr (praised one of the good god)' (Helck 1984 [Urk IV]: 1465). Added to this, both TT 90 and TT 94 were closely situated to each other, so they have been built at a similar time. Furthermore, the owner of # 22 named Didw who was entombed at TT 200 and was a captain of 'Meryamun' lived in the reigns under T.III and A. II. This matches well with our Aamy. For this reason, I regard this cone's owner as TT 94 Ramose, whose tomb also had other types (# 200 and # 248).

Remarks
・One example was unearthed at Dra Abul Naga (Heyler 1959 [Kêmi 15]: 87 n. 2). One example was unearthed at Medinet Habu. This could be other type of cones since it is too damaged to read the text (Teeter et al. 2003: 186, Pl. 101b).
 One example was unearthed at Asasif (Budka 2010: 318, 740).
・The owner ascribed is identical to that of # 376 and # 395.
・According to Heyler, it is a bird that is at the upper left corner (Heyler 1959 [Kêmi 15]: 93).
