(2) Street G 7200 and G 7220
Street G 7200, front of G 7220. In the chapel of G 7220, was a tangled mass of limestone blocks. They gave us great trouble all day. Casing blocks are being rolled smooth on the floor of the street and other blocks (rough) are being broken up.
The offering niche is well preserved.

The inscriptions have been erased by chiseling away the hieroglyphics which were in relief. The title [GLYPHS] is clear but the name has not yet been made out. In debris some fragments of relief. In the upper debris, further north, Ptolemaic objects.
Just south of chapel is a pit which has been begun and left unfinished (G 7220 X).
