Other Information:
The previous electronic catalogue entry relating to numbers EP.AK.1-17 identified the river as Oboth. I have been unable to confirm this information elsewhere, and so have assumed that the images are of the Akobo river, near which Pochala is situated. [Chris Morton 12/12/2003] In The Political System of the Anuak of the Anglo-Egyptian Sudan (monographs on Social Anthropology no.4, London School of Economics, 1940) page 116, E. E. Evans-Pritchard gives a list of nobles mostly of Thim district and their villages, which includes Kuat-wa-Guei. [Chris Morton 15/12/2003]
