The mud chapel has walls 1.5 meters thick, almost all the east side being gone, the line being traced by the beginning of the plastering at the floor.

Here there is a later mud brick pit sunk down through debris of upper walls.

The shaft in Lepsius 23 [= G 2000] is 2.68 meters square and has now reached a depth of 15 meters.
