Abstract

Few remarks regarding the discovery of blocks of Thutmosis II inside the foundations of the walls of the Cachette court and the 7th Pylon itself during the 1955-1958 excavations of this area. A new examination of a set of glass negatives kept in the CFEETK archives provide more information on real extent of the area explored and allowed identification of two well-known blocks from the reigns of Senusret I and the regency of Thutmosis III by Hatshepsut to which the find-spot was previously unknown, and provides new elements for the much discussed chronology of the building activities of Hatshepsut and Thutmosis III.
