(2) Street G 7100 S
Continued working out upper debris to north in street G 7100 S. On west opened the damaged offering room of G 7130.

(3) Trenches south of G 7100 S
Outlined G 7164 and examined its top.
[ILLUSTRATION]
The sand west sides of G 7164 were buried to a depth of five courses in an ancient dump which runs to south-southeast from the direction of G 7150. The material is clean limestone chips, decayed granite and Old Kingdom potsherds (R.W. and R.P.). This dump was subsequent in date to G 7164. We exposed the southern end of another mastaba G 7165.

(4) G 7130
In clearing street G 7100 S, exposed the badly damaged offering room of G 7130.
[ILLUSTRATION]
G 7130 and G 7140 are encased in one wall like G 7110 and G 7120, etc. but three chapels (at least) are visible instead of two.
