(1) G 6010 (continued)
In fact the dressing has only been begun. In the southwest quarter of room b is an unfinished and unused burial pit about 2 meters deep, the kerb of which rises 30-40 cm above the rock. The kerb is embedded in a low mound of mason's debris which slopes away to north and east. The pit and the rest of the room was filled with clean drift sand. The pit is intrusive.
G 6010 rooms c, d: room d is a roofed colonnade (square pillars) around the eastern and southern sides of the open court c[???]. Reliefs on east wall of d in L.D. II 56 a and a[???].
G 6010 e: The inscribed upper part of the pillars and the architrave are now in Berlin. I presume the great roofing blocks which we found over G 6012, G 6013, G 6014 were removed from this room by Lepsius as he entered an empty chamber through the hole still visible in the east wall. In the sand is a layer of dark brown matter, a deposit mainly bat's dung which seems to represent the floor as found by Lepsius. The west wall has been badly damaged in places by modern thieves hunting the serdab.
G 6010 f: no niche in west wall (or elsewere). The two vertical bands are painted to represent granite and seem to picture a portico. The walls have been badly damaged in the search for a serdab and by attempting to remove reliefs.
(2) G 6020
G 6020 rooms b, serdab and c: Finished room b and serdab and partly cleared room c. The roof in c is elevated around the niche. [ILLUSTRATION] Possibly there was a window, but the roofing stones directly over this place are gone.
