PREVIOUS INTERPRETATIONS The excavators (Carter & Mace, 1923: 120; Carter Archive, Index Cards 123-11) described the object as a ‘traveling canopy’ or ‘portable pavilion’, supposed to have been set up when the king was to have an alfresco audience or when he wished to sit in the shade.

At least two problems suggest themselves with regard to the reconstruction of this object and its presumed use.
