[Lepsius 23 = G 2000 (continued)]
extended on the left side head north and two jars (canopic?) one of which is still sealed. It seems incredible that this deep shaft should lead to such a poor burial. There is no stone coffin and the walls of the chamber are not lined with stone as in the case of the smaller mastabas. I do not think that this can be the main burial shaft. In fact it is not exactly in the axis of the mastaba and is very far south of the middle. I hope to find that there is another and a main pit north of this. [ILLUSTRATION].
Professor Naville came to see the excavations.
The space filled with small mastabas between G 2150 and G 2220 is nearly clear. Just against the end of the chapel (mud brick) of G 2150 there is the mud brick chapel of a smaller mastaba [G 2151]. In this were fragments of carved reliefs of white stone. The offering niches (still preserved) of nummulitic limestone show the name of [GLYPHS] [Ptahwer].
This is probably the same "funerary priest Ptah-wer" who is mentioned in the reliefs of Ka-nefer (G 2150).
The mud brick chapel of G 2130 is interesting. The walls are preserved to a height of 50 - 100 cm.
