There are different types of catalog derived from sources: (1) publications as indicated; (2) the archives of the Centre Franco-Égyptien d'Étude des Temples de Karnak (CFEETK); (3) the Journal d'Entrée and Temporary Register at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo; (4) personal observations of the fragments displayed in museums and those stored in the Sheikh Labib storehouse in Karnak; (5) observations and photographs by Robert Partridge of some of the fragments in the late 1990s; and (6) information and photographs supplied by Edwin Brock of objects discovered during his recent excavations at East Karnak. In connection with this, the discussion about colossi and its mutilation is presented for better understanding that gives a more detailed excavation on what happened. Moreover, classification of fragments is discussed in this chapter.
