Here is the plan. Work is done in the mastaba G 7631 itself will be described under that head (q.v.).

The mastaba stonework is built west of the serdab on construction debris of clean white limestone chips. The west part of the edge of the large pit to the east is faced with rough stonework, the other three sides with crude brick. The chamber lies in the west under a rock face, thus built up with rubble.
