The small mastabas on the north were embedded in hard debris and covered with a layer of sandy debris. On this stones and debris from the northeast corner of G 5230 W. In the street between G 5230 W and N, the pile of stones from the destruction of the northeast corner of G 5230 W and the top back course of G 5230 N presents a considerable difficulty.

Part of these are being rolled south into the courtyard of G 5230 (floor found destroyed) and part north into street north of G 5230. As the work is crowded owing to the above difficulty, arranged to put part of men at work preparing for the clearing west of G 4910 and G 4920.
