[(2) East of G 4710 (continued)]
are traces of a small mud and rubble mastaba (G 4713) as shown below. The north face of G 4712 is built close to the south face of G 4710, extending eastward thence, so that a narrow space is left between the east face of G 4712 and the east face of G 4714. This space not yet cleared but its north end is closed by a small wall.

(3) G 4712
Work started on pit G 4712 A is of rough battered masonry of large size. Just east of A the top of a wall facing east is probably the west wall of the chamber.

(4) South of G 4611
Work between G 4611 and the Great Wall in sand and among large clocks fallen from the wall.
Note: G 4613 C[1] is built over an older and larger pit. Its south and west faces are rubble, while the east and north are solid rock below the ground level, showing that it has been reduced from a larger pit.
