The north wall of the outer chamber has three figures on each side facing cell - man (private person ?), woman, and small child. The child on west is named [GLYPHS] [Padiamen], that on the east [GLYPHS] [Hor]. In this chamber were found two bits of faience; and behind the masonry of the cell to east, a broken jar used for carrying plaster. The whole is intruded in the filling of mastaba G 7130 and is well built of fine white limestone with plastered masonry as backing.
