(4) G 7142
Continued the clearance of sebbakheem debris from the top of this mastaba, down to the limestone chip filling thereof. The northern face is of mud brick built up against its first wall of small masonry, this masonry being backed with loose limestone fragments.
The west face, also a mud brick wall, originally ran south to the face of G 7150, but has been broken through anciently to gain access to the room in G 7150. The south face is pressed[?] by the terrace wall of mud brick, backed with limestone chips, which originally ran westwards across the southern end of street G 7000, just south of pyramid G I-c. This terrace wall, marking the step down in level of street G 7000, has been broken into by the buildup of G 7150 across it.
