The word "console" seems to have some special technical meaning in the context of Egyptology which I cannot figure out. Here is an example sentence:
Toutefois, d’après le numéro de console, cette stèle appartiendrait à la XXVIIe dynastie.
What does "console" mean in this context?
Note that the usage is a technical term in Egyptology having to do with the features of steles, so it is possible that to answer correctly may require expert knowledge of Egyptology as it is practiced in France.
