(4) G 6040 (continued)
Formula in the name of [GLYPHS]
This is undoubtedly the father of Iymery so that we have here a family cemetery of three generations.
Gen. 1 - G 6040 = [GLYPHS] [Shepseskafankh]
Gen. 2 - G 6020 = his son [GLYPHS] [Iymery]; G 6030 = his son in law [GLYPHS] [Iti]
Gen. 3 - G 6010 = his grandson [GLYPHS] [Neferbauptah]
The north wall of G 6040 and room a seem to show two additions to the original mastabas.

In the doorway of b was found a stone broken from the side of a niche - a man standing looking left, and below him [GLYPHS]. Under these words on the stone below were probably figures of two priests.
