G 7153 C: Depth 5.5 meters. Chamber on west. Door block of small rubble and mud.

(5) G 7050
G 7050 X: In the rock floor of Street G 7000 X, middle, just north of exterior stone chapel of G 7050 and west of G 7153, uncovered a natural fissure in the rock which had been made into a burial place.
[ILLUSTRATION]
The western part has been walled off with a stone wall, a rectangular vertical cut seemed to lead to a pit but was only 30 - 40 cm deep. The northern side had been walled with rubble. It is yet uncertain whether this north rubble wall conceals (1) a natural fissure, or (2) a passage, or (3) a burial.

(6) Avenue G 4 and G I-c (south face)
After lunch put a small gang on Avenue G 4, clearing the heaps of surface debris and using railroad Line V.
