In the mixed limestone and dark debris in the shaft A of 2097 [= G 3097] was a rough flint flake, G34. B is also filled with similar debris. Shafts C-E and F of 2097 [= G 3097] are cleared and D is partly finished. All are filled with sand and limestone, dirty debris. Four shafts, A to D, of mastaba 2096 [= G 3096] are now cleared.
