…by a mud brick wall; the serdab was lettered Z. In this were remains of a double statuette, photo C46. The concealing wall of the serdab was removed in the hope of saving the statuette, but it crumbled to pieces at the first touch, as it was of wood, stuccoed. This mastaba has two shafts, A and B, both of which are filled with sand and limestone debris. Shaft D of 2097 [= G 3097] is now finished. Clearing the offering rooms X of mastaba 3004, and Y which seems to belong to 3005, of sand and underlying hard packed mud debris. In the chamber X of 3004 is a niche of mud brick with traces of white stucco. The inner recess is crowned with the usual log lintel, a small limestone block, which bears the name Khufu-mer neteru. Above this is a flat limestone stele almost the width of the niche, which consists of a relief panel with a band of inscription below. In the relief the owner is seated on a stool or chair before a table of offerings. The inscription below states that he is Khufu-mer-neteru, the Commander of ten ships (?), see photograph C45. In front of the niche is a plain offering basin. The stele itself and the log lintel are badly weathered and could not safely be removed, they will therefore be left in position.
