mound Vyses' dump
rough Saite-Ptolemaic period walls of crude brick and limestone
The debris is being cut out to about a meter above rock. This deposit is the same dirty mixture (decayed mud, ashes, coals, dust) as the upper layer everywhere in this region. In it were found a number of Saite-Ptolemaic amulets and fragments also the arm of an Old Kingdom limestone statuette, fragment of an Old Kingdom stela, and fragment of an Old Kingdom relief.
Over this debris is a thin layer of yellow debris of decay, thickening close to each pyramid. The faces of the pyramids are being cleared as we proceed.
