[G 5235 A (continued)]
One skull was found in chamber, but there may have been an intrusive burial (x-burial). It looks as if the chamber had not been used.
In the north part of G 5234 forecourt are two burial shafts - possibly older than G 5234.
Thursday, December 3, 1914
Cold north wind.
Work on G 5230 N and on space behind and in front thereof. Also G 5221 A.
In G 5221 A in doorway, basis of squatting scribe [GLYPHS] in black granite [14-12-7]. A little way below the torso. Head missing. We have now fragments of thirty or more statues of Khnum-ba-ef [Khnumbaef (Babaef)] and only one head and part of another. Where are they all?
Clearing away stones and sand to back windows of four serdabs in G 5230 N. All four had been broken into and were nearly full of sand. The third and fourth from the south were cleared. In No. 3 remains of Roman burials (evil smelling). No. 1 and 2 from the south not yet clear. Still working on passage between G 5230 W and G 5230 N.
In front of G 5235 cleared the sloping shaft leading to G 5235 A (see page 60). The shaft is unfinished. The stone which blocks the lower end of the passage proved to be an unfinished limestone coffin lid.
In G 5235 forecourt three fragments of relief - one [14-12-15] with the name [GLYPHS] Seshem-nofer [Seshemnefer].
