(1) G 6030
Resumed examination of top of mastaba G 6030. The hole dug by plunderers behind the south niche of the offering room descends far enough to prove that no secret room exists behind that niche. I suspect that these thieves knew of the secret chamber behind the south niche in G 6040. The hole was filled with sand.
(2) G 6043
G 6043 G: Depth 1.9 meters. Original filling: Chamber on west, door block in place.
G 6043 H: Depth 1.95 meters. Sand to about 90 cm then original filling: Chamber on west, door block in place.
G 6043 I: Depth 1.9 meters. Original filling. Chamber in west, door block in place.
