Notes:  Tomb 15 is well documented in the original excavation records. The tomb card lists the pottery types and objects found in the grave and the half-plate negative illustrates the finds. This evidence has helped scholars to securely identify the majority of the objects from Tomb 15, which are now scattered among various American museums.
