(3) G 7430
Here work is now only in the clearing of rooms at bottom of pit C. Rowe and Greenlees went down the pit today and saw there a large complex of a dozen Saitico-Ptolemaic tombs or more. These led off at several levels in all from directions and were filled with a very dirty debris. In one a broken Ptolemaic coffin was seen. From the debris came one Old Kingdom alabaster model offering jar, a broken bronze or copper dish, one complete blue glaze amulet of (?) and part of a Horus(?) trampling on two crocodiles. Pit C is now shown as 830 cm deep. The texts showing on the walls and doors of this tomb were copied:
