Had a gang engaged under Wheeler in clearing up lines of Isis Temple while he worked on plan. All that remains of the old pyramid temple is room R.
The peculiarity in the construction is the use of tall upright slabs. Room Q was paved with irregular slabs of stone, set on debris around the four columns which rest on debris.
