[ILLUSTRATION] D 18.8, 10.9; H 5.6
(70) is a slightly larger example but with all the rim missing.
No. 1422: potsherd; continuation of 1420. A4423.
(1-67) potsherds as before, and many large fragments of white plaster. At last we understand. This plaster (sulfate of lime) was used in the Dahshur tomb to set the masonry blocking the entrance; smeared on the outside of the jambs and wiped with the hand or with fiber.
No. 67 was an enormous mass which had covered the entrance of a sloping passage with vaulted roof.
This suggests a passage like those of Dynasty 3 stairway tomb but of stone not crude brick.
No. 1423: area on A423 swept up.
*A4425: No. 1422, looking east
*A4426: No. 1421, looking east (a bit north)
