[ILLUSTRATION] a serdab. This had the first stone on the south shifted to one side. The casing of the offering chamber and of the mastaba had been removed by stone thieves. In this process the outer part of the serdab window had been removed, exposing the interior and the statues. The stone workers had apparently then entered by removing south stone from roof, and upset some of the statues, looking for treasure. They had also broken the statues, perhaps in anger at finding nothing. Continuing their work in the street (a chapel?) on the east, they had thrown the rubbish back into the serdab through the window. They were now probably still looking for treasure, for with this rubbish they threw in also a skeleton (old female, certainly from an X-pit).
1. Single standing limestone statue [12-10-2].
2. Double limestone statue ([heads] missing) [12-10-3].
3. Head [12-10-6].
There were also fragments of a small female statuette (head) and a small male statuette [shattered triad 12-10-4].
