Clearing the debris of sand and rubble from the top of mastaba. After planning the brick work of late period which stood at the north end of the mastaba, this was removed, revealing earlier brickwork around pit G 7240i.
It has now become apparent that the lay out of the mastabas G 7140, G 7240, G 7340 etc. differs from that of the more northerly mastabas of this cemetery, the fact that the "40s" and "30s" are directly connected while the "10s" and "20s" are separated by a subsequent filled in avenue. Further, whereas the "10s", "20s" and "30s" of the 7000 series have an approximate average length of core of 36.5 meters, the "40s" are only of 29 meters. The widths of the cores are however approximately the same in all cases. This appears to signify that the "40s" were subsequent extensions of the "30s" before the joining of the two into one long mastaba. The "40s" and "20s" would appear to have been already in position when the idea of joining them first came.
