(1) Avenue G 1 (continued)
Street G I-b and G I-a. The north face of G I-b and the south face of G I-a have been uncovered from top of C 1 (?) upwards.
On G I-b the casing runs as usual to a point about 1 meter from sloping passage where the casing stones begin to be laid on a slant and are so laid to the other side of the passage.
It appears at present as if the passage (and chambers) had prepared first, and the pyramid built over the preliminary structure which contained the passage. [Later: The slanting stones begin further east but are there laid on a less abrupt slant than around the passage.]
Sunday, November 16, 1924
Fifteenth day of work.
Ali Mahmud [Ali Mahmud Ahmed] was buried [properly as a Moslem] this morning.
(1) G I-b street G I-a
(1) Avenue G 1
Street between G I-b and G I-a.
Continued clearing westward to a diagonal line from west of passage of G I-b to about middle of G I-a and started clearing backwards towards east. Immediately exposed a wide and apparently deep cut in the rock running east and west and with a casing partly preserved. Shifted the gangs to the upper debris further east before descending further. This may be the upper eastward arm of a Dynasty 3 stairway tomb (older than G I) [ILLUSTRATION]
