Charles Jones gave the information via EEF, that some of the "Brooklyn Museum Publications now available under a Creative Commons non-commercial attribution license via the copies in the custody of HathiTrust. In other words they're free for you to read or download.".

He has done a compilation of the for Egypt relevant titels on : Brooklyn Museum Publications : Titles with full-text online.

Among them is one of the rare bigger publications with Amarna blocks from Hermopolis ... John D. Cooney : Amarna reliefs from Hermopolis in American collections. - Mainz : Zabern, 1965.

By the way, a similar offer was announced by the Metropoliton Museum of Art a few weeks ago. The information may be gone lost? Here it is again :

The image on Page 27 of the book on the Hermopolis block is of an un-named Queen with the nubian style wig and large ear-rings. I'd say it's Kiya but the Queen is depicted with an uraeus. A very intriguing image - does it show KV35YL, or Kiya, or someone else?

Why not Nefertiti who is apparently favoured by the writer?

I think it's on the earrings. Has anyone ever actually checked whether Kiya was really the only of the Amarna women who appears with these things on reliefs from Amarna?

The big ear-bobs seem to have been something of a trademark of Kiya's but the little statuette of an aged Nefertiti show her wearing them as well and one of of the plaster masks from Thutmose's workshop is also so adorned and on the strength of it has been identified as Kiya.
