Comments: Text transliteration: wsir Hm-nTr nb-S dwA
There is no certainty that the reading is nb-S is correct. The hieroglyph for S is not clear. Several experts have examined the inscription and there is not consensus about that hieroglyph being N37 [Gardiner’s signs code] –N1 has also been suggested, being the epithet nb p.t (Lord of Heaven) a likely solution.
