Sunday, January 10, 1926 (continued)

(4) G 7150
Have cleared back of G 7150 (tomb of [GLYPHS] [Khafkhufu], not the Prince) for about one half of the length. It is of sloping gray masonry, massive, dressed to a flat slope. Began clearing the space between G 7140 and G 7150 which must touch below. The south face of G 7140 (fine white sloping) is dressed; but the north face of G 7150 (sloping gray masonry) is undressed although dressed on all other faces.
[ILLUSTRATION]
It is certain that G 7150 is later in date and that the sloping gray masonry is here at least later than the sloping white. The mastabas of this type G 7160, G 7170 are probably also later than G 7130 + G 7140 [G 7130-7140].

(5) G 7509
On clearing away one of the intrusive pits in G 7509 for Wheeler's survey, found a limestone stela [26-1-512, inscribed for Isi] cast down: [GLYPHS] Top knocked off. [GLYPHS]
