(1) Street G 7500 (continued)
This mastaba [G 7521] will receive a number when it is more completely excavated. The reliefs of the seven girls are well executed, their figures slim and not ungraceful.
Work in the pits today continues. A further large batch received numbers this afternoon and a plan of these is given today.
G 7510 G is now being cleared through the mouth of G 7641 D which its chamber communicates on the south.
G 7508 is a complex of rock cut pits in a straight line east of G 7517. They probably belong to a mastaba of crude brick.

Pits G 7620 M - Z are, of course, intrusive in the mastaba G 7620. So also is G 7509 A which is of late date. The plan of this will be found over the page as an addendum to the day's entry in this journal. [The plan of this area will be found on the next page.]
