Friday, January 21, 1927 (continued)
(1) Street G 7300
Continued excavating debris in street G 7300 between north end of G 7330 and G 7430. The harder old debris slopes down to north so that the loose discolored debris deepens towards north and contains a good deal of broken limestone (chips, etc.) In the dark debris the usual abundant fragments of faience (ushabtis, amulets, etc.) and many fragments of green frit New Year's bottles.
(2) Ptolemaic-Roman crude brick walls G 7100 Pt i and Pt ii
These crude brick walls over G 7143, G 7145 and southward having been mapped and photographed were removed today.
Southward from the top of G 7145 and G 7151 a floor extends looking south trodden on a deep deposit of sand and limestone debris. This is the same Ptolemaic floor which appears high up on doorway of G 7152. Over this is a larger 20-50 cm thick of black Ptolemaic-Roman dust etc. on which G 7100 Pt i and ii were built at different levels (i at a lower level than ii). The actual living floor of i and ii were not removed and the walls as formed represent foundations. Nos. i and ii may have had floors at same level but in deeper founded and probably earlier.
I assume that there are private funerary chapels like them in Isis temple but have not yet identified the pits belonging to them.
By sunset had cut away all of ii and almost all of i.
(3) G 7143
After removing G 7100 ii, exposed top of southern wall of stone mastaba G 7143.
G 7143 B: Total depth of pot 10.4 meters; thieves' debris; removed remains of door block; chamber on west
