Thursday, December 25, 1924 (continued)

(7) G 7310
G 7310 B: Began G 7310 B probably also unfinished like G 7110 B. G 7310 A does not exist like G 7210 B (see page 82 and 102). Down 8 meters. Fragments of Ptolemaic objects as in street debris.

(8) G 7320
G 7320 A: Main pit of twin mastaba G 7310 and G 7320. The doorway noted yesterday proves to be a chamber cut later (Dynasty 6?). The pit descends, and the entrance to the old burial chamber must be several meters further down.

In the debris below X, Ptolemaic objects showing that old chamber A is plundered. Whether in the Ptolemaic period or in modern times is yet uncertain. The modern plundering introduces Ptolemaic objects.

(9) G 7332 [number G 7332 later reassigned to tomb G 7331+7332, in street G 7300, abutting E face of G 7330; this G 7332 = G 7333]
G 7333 A: Finished pit G 7332 A. [ILLUSTRATION] Long chamber on east. Rough limestone coffin covered with two slabs [ILLUSTRATION]. South slab removed by thieves. One more fragment of limestone stela in pit.
