[ILLUSTRATION]
G 7050 has a core of massive yellow limestone blocks but of the later inferior type of Cemetery G 4000. The casing is of fine white limestone but is badly weathered, preserved to the second or third course. Near the middle is a great deposit of fine black ashes from a fire (of cornstalks ?). In the surface debris were found fragments of Saite-Ptolemaic objects as usual.

(4) Railroad V and G 7060
G 7060 is Lepsius 57, the tomb of the Prince Nefermaat.
Began laying railroad V between G 7050 and G 7060 in order to reach the southern face of Pyramid G I-c. The dump will lie on the trenched ground west of the present dump. See G 7050 of this date.
