Just west of the offering room G 7331 and with a floor level about equivalent to the surface of decay of G 7331 [= unnumbered structure at SE corner of G 7320], are the remains of a late mastaba of stone, see (5) above. This has two and perhaps three burials pits of which A (north) was never used (ends at rock) and A is a large square pit (now being excavated) filled with old thieves debris.

(7) Street G 7200
Clearing street G 7200 northwards into part in front of G 7220. Cf. (4) above.

(8) G 7220
G 7220 A: The door block of masonry is in place but has been penetrated in the upper east corner by thieves. Around this entrance inside, the [ILLUSTRATION] debris was piled as usual sloping away inside. The top of a red granite coffin [24-12-1205] is visible above the slope on the west (not inscribed). Where G 7120 A has a niche in south wall, G 7220 has a doorway to a second room. This second room is unfinished and the marks on the south wall indicate that four masons were at work when the work was stopped. The pit is about 14.30 meters deep.
