(1) Pyramid G I-c
Continued clearing main chamber of G I-c. In the floor there is a rock-cut trench (Saite ?) running towards north under the casing and a rock cut hole in southwest corner. The wall on the north is some distance from the rock wall (north) of the chamber.

(2) Street 7000 S (south)
Continued clearing toward south and among the crude brick walls of the temple. These are clearly part of the reconstruction called the "Isis-Temple" which is in the place of the old pyramid temple I-c. Yet among the crude brick walls on the west is a burial (G 7011 A) and a pit (G 7011 B). Over the area is a layer of black debris.
