(2) Street G 7500 and G 7510 (continued)
eldest daughter of the King (=Hwfw, Khufu), her husband might well have been heir to the throne and on his death Khafre have followed him as being husband of the (?) second daughter Meresankh. This position would account for the owner's wealth so clearly manifested in this huge and beautiful mastaba. The reliefs are everywhere of great delicacy and beauty and the colors often remarkably fresh. This is a scale sketch of the stela of Hetepheres.
stela of [GLYPHS] facing west G 7510
Just east of this stela there is a pit (G 7510 Y) from which at the depth of 3.20 meters clear sand is coming. From the depth of 1.80 meters came a set of late (Dynasty 30?) canopic jars of limestone, the heads on the lids being beautifully carved. One of these bears the following text [GLYPHS] in rough black ink characters giving the name of Ankhpekhrad. Others contain a few fragments of hieroglyphs. From this pit came also a very fine black polished stone saucer, a number of fine beads of blue, green and yellow faience, and many fragments of ushabtis of blue glaze (perhaps Dynasty 30) one bearing the inscription [GLYPHS] with the name of [TRANSLITERATION].
This pit also contained a few fragments of relief from G 7510 chapels, in the upper debris. It will be sketched in together with the chapels of the great mastaba when all are cleared. To the south of these chapels the plan of G 7631 (q.v.) is now almost clear and a plan is given overleaf. West of it there is a small chapel not yet excavated, and to the east a deep pit wherein is the entrance to a large chamber on west. The mastaba is constructed of smaller stones than those in the greater mastaba. The stela is of the general type of Dynasty 6 and bears traces of sculpture on south.
