[(2) Between G 4920 and G 4910 (continued)]
with traces of black painted plastering. This space had been occupied by an exterior chapel of mud brick of which chapel this space A B was a room. When later the chapel was built up and used as a mastaba, the dividing wall was put into A B transforming it into two burial pits. The black painted walls of this chapel resemble those of the mud chapel east of G 4920. It probably belonged to G 4920, and when converted into a mastaba, the street chapel was built to replace it. The east side of this mastaba has a battered stone face with a niche at the north and a space for one at the south. The debris lying over the back wall of G 4911 (probably from filling of mastaba) contains a large amount of broken potsherds, of rough red ware, red polished ware (recurved rims) and smooth ware. Along with these two fragments of rough r.b. [red brown?] ware with white paintings, on both fragments [ILLUSTRATION] roughly drawn.
