(1) Street G 7500
On the surface the men are now clearing the west of the street at about 8 meters south of the north face of G 7510. They are also clearing the door of G 7523 and near the surface west and southeast of the mastaba.
G 7523 is a fair-sized mastaba of stone (? Dynasty 6). To the southeast of the door leading (?) to its interior chapel and in a wall facing east there is the lower part of a finely painted stela bearing the names of the man [GLYPHS] [Iby] who is also called [GLYPHS] [Sedaf]. From the debris about 6 meters southeast of this stela was found a fragment of a door jamb [25-2-1037] bearing traces of painting and the inscribed text [ILLUSTRATION/GLYPHS]. This clearly belongs to this mastaba of Yby.
