Paci thought that the tomb might be W25 Cassels. However, his description of the place, a small valley on the left side of Wadi Bil Ghadir, does not correspond to such a number in Cassels' map. The side valley should be Wadi Haleg Stawat, where there is a series of tombs, numbered W62 to W97, amongst which this inscription might be hosted.
