Street G 7100 and front of G 7120. Moved loading switch back again and proceeded with clearing street G 7100 in front of south end of G 7120. The debris is in an inextricable mess owing to recent operations. The hole near the southeast corner of the casing of G 7120 appears to lead to a pit.
In the debris fragments of Old Kingdom and Ptolemaic mixed.
