Sunday, November 15, 1914 (continued)

At (+) behind the angle of the wall, there are laid rough stones apparently a rough traced foundation of some sort (perhaps for the support of the southeast part of mastaba Lepsius 41 (G 5330)). The wall B appears to have only one face (the eastern one). Behind this face there seems to be simply a filling of rubble and limestone chips. That is, B appears to be the retaining wall of the platform on which the mastabas above were built.
