Work on:
(1) Street G 7400
(2) Street G 7500
(3) Avenue G 2 east
(4) G 7510
(5) G 7111

(1) Street G 7400 and G 7422
Street G 7400: east of G 7410.
The men are now clearing the north part of the exterior chapel of G 7410 and towards the north as far as the end of the street. In pit G 7422 D the depth of 650 cm was reached and robbers' debris continues to be brought up.

(2) Street G 7500
Street G 7500: east of G 7510.
The plan accompanying gives an idea of this street as at present cleared. From the upper debris came several glazed ushabtis bearing the name of "Ankhnefribre [Ankhneferibre], child of Hetpsakhmet [Hetepwebastet]." The arch shown in diagram below plan is not yet completely cleared. To the south the debris is still deep. The pit G 7510 X is not yet quite clear. It is almost certainly Ptolemaic in date, and superstructure was built when the street was already somewhat filled with debris.
