…is a standing figure of the man Medady. The stele is that of Kha-khenmet, his wife. In the central niche and on the left hand panel are portraits of Kha-khenmet. Above the niche in the main panel she sits before a table of offerings. Along the top of the stele is an inscription “Priestess of Wep-wa-wat, Kha-khenmet.” The workmanship of this stele is much superior to that of the adjoining relief. Above the stelae the mud brick is faced with rubble coated with plaster.
Photograph C32 shows the two stelae partly uncovered, while C36 shows them fully exposed. In the floor in front of the relief of Medady was a small rough offering slab= G24, without inscription. Chamber Y of this same mastaba was filled with hard packed dark debris, like the other two. Shaft F of this mastaba, which contains hard packed debris, is the only one being cleared thus far. In the offering room (W) of 2094 [= G 3094], which was filled with similar debris, was found a vase=G25 of fine thin pink ware about 20 cm high. A little distance to the west is a mud brick mastaba 2097 [= G 3097]. In the dark debris of chamber X were two flint flakes =G26-27 and fragments of a pottery bowl. In the debris of the passage east of this chamber were four blue cylindrical beads and fragments of another = G28.
