(1) G 2359 [= G 5552]
On the top of the mastaba, south of A, exposing the end of the big stone which we excavated yesterday on west side. Big stones from the mastaba (we break), and underneath limestone debris, dubsh and sand. Expose the stone on west, length 1.79 meters. We do not yet exposed[???] if there are other stones or not, because the stone is running underneath mastaba G 2342 [= G 5520] building. It looks to us that these stones are plug stones of a rock cut tomb.

(2) G 4712
G 4712 A: In shaft and chamber. It is northwest of the mastaba room lined with stones above and rock below. Total depth 8.25 meters, excavated before 7.1 meters. Drift sand, limestone debris, dubsh and stones in the room. Found in chamber: head of body. Cleared.
