We will change the caption at DT62.T6 to "Tombs. Grave goods" and add a Cf. note to BL2450.F8 for Funeral rites and ceremonies.

There seem to be two equally valid class numbers for ancient Egyptian 
funeral customs/rites:

DT62.T6          ... Ancient Egypt. Egyptology--Special topics, 
A-Z--Tombs. Funeral customs
BL2450.F8      ... Ancient Egypt--Special deities and topics, 
A-Z--Funeral rites

Perhaps "Funeral customs" should be deleted and a see reference added at 
DT62.T6  "For works on funeral rites see BL2450.F8"  Or, perhaps notes 
should be added to explain the difference, if indeed there is one?

Thank you,
