Masonry mastaba with rubble core. Uncovered its north face. The debris over all this area is mostly drift-sand which has banked up against this north-facing slope. The rock face in which the small rock-cut tombs (G 1607, G 1608, G 1609, G 1611, G 1612, G 1618) are cut, is not high, and the ground slopes fairly steeply above, and less steep by below it.
