mastaba I have called IX 5 [= G 2184] is considerably smaller than the rest of group. Along its east side a finely finished face of limestone has been added, covering an older face. At the north end this later facing is broken away disclosing a fine stela in situ behind it. The newer face is covered with reliefs, well cut and all colored. At the south end of this wall is a projecting chapel of well finished stone. A round beam lintel spans the door and this is inscribed as is also a narrow band down each side of door. This leads into a small painted chamber in which was a beautiful limestone male seated figure [MFA 12.1482, inscribed for Akhmerutnisut] with black hair and traces of colors elsewhere. Below the knees this figure is still buried in debris of roof and sand, but will be about 1 meter high. The musculation of chest and folds of skirt as well as features are very fine, only the tips of nose and ears, etc. being chipped by fall of debris. The figure seems to be in situ beside a recessed door leading to a second chamber likewise partly decorated in color. About half of the roofing of whole structure is in place.
As Dr. Reisner with Mr. Frick is expected Wednesday, I am having the tomb carefully cleared and left with statue in place
