[G 2415 mislabeled G 2315]

G 2315 [sic! G 2415] is built on the debris on an older mastaba G 2316 [sic! G 2416] and stands on a level 1 meter or more above G 2314 [sic! G 2414]. The names are man on south niche [GLYPHS] [Weri], then a white false door very flat, then north niche with woman [GLYPHS] [Meti].

Work on Lepsius 23 (G 2000) north niche revealed a mass of masonry built in niche. In this masonry is a huge square unfinished offering niche [ARROW] [ILLUSTRATION]. In front are a number of huge limestone blocks cast down from the masonry. These we must carry out before going on.
