North of G 2378 A, the rock is dressed to a perpendicular face on the edge of which the east wall of G 2378 has been built. The space in front of this is filled with clean limestone debris. About 3 meters east of it are two parallel rubble walls.

Clearing also westwards north of G 2376 and G 2378. In north part of G 2376 a series of mud-brick rooms, walls showing yellowish-white plaster. Filled with stones. No pit. Walls older than G 2378.


West of this (G 2378) small mastabas of at least two periods overbuilt and all much destroyed (G 2461 etc.). In western part, fragments of stela in relief. The stone wall of G 2377 and G 2376 has also been cased in mud-brick of later date than casing of G 2378. These two seem to be additions to G 2378.
