(8) G 6013
South of G 6012 uncovered fragment of rubble work and three pits apparently belong to a small mastaba which abuts G 6012 on south.

Monday, November 23, 1925
Sixth day of work.

Quftis: 100

Work on:
(1) G 6010 rooms b, c, d, e and f
(2) G 6020 rooms b, serdab and c
(3) G 6030 pit B
(4) G 6012 pits A and B and offering room on east
(5) south side of G 6010
(6) G 6014

(1) G 6010
G 6010 rooms, b, c, d, e and f: One gang finished the open court G 6010 b and entered court G 6010 c which they assisted the second gang to clear.
The second gang finished rooms d and f and with first gang cleared court c. At the close of work, they were working on the last meter of sand in e.
G 6010 b: The figure in the niche is new exposed and we find the niche and figure is of one vertical stone (good gray nummulitic limestone). The bottom of the niche is almost a meter above the floor.


The wall of G 6020 is dressed to the foundation course which rests on rock. The rock is the floor of room G 6010 a, b, c. But the north wall of the mastaba G 6010 in room b and the west wall of that room (constructed after G 6020) have been only very partially dressed.
