G 7431 C: The door block of the chamber of this grave was removed today. The chamber, which is at the south, was found to be very small, and has evidently not been rifled. Part of the leg of a skeleton projects from the debris, the top of which bears traces of water.

(7) G 7432
The pit of this grave has now been cleared; it is 645 cm deep. There is a small chamber to the east, which contains roughly dressed local limestone coffin and lid, the latter in position. The tomb has been plundered and is full of dirty debris.
To the east of the stela in the east wall of the mastaba has come to light a small room of crude brick. The south wall of this room is formed of the enclosing wall of mastaba G 7430. (See also No. 3 above for angle and east part of this wall). A sketch of the room is as under:

To the south of the stela is part of inscription on decayed stone; this is given below:
