Uncovered the northern face of this masonry mastaba, which is separated from the south face of G 7142 by the narrow street G 7150 (1 meter wider at top). Removing debris, (sebbakheem, dirt of Saite-Ptolemaic times) from the top of mastaba. To the southern end, a line of large stones was uncovered, running east and west-seemingly a late foundation for a subsequent erection. What is presumed to be the beginning of a pit was found on the mastaba.
