The west and south sides of mastaba 3002 have been cleared of sand; all the shafts have been cleared of limestone and dark debris. In C were fragments of a wooden head rest. Shaft A of 3004 contains dark limestone debris.
In the hard packed mud debris of chamber Y of 3005 were two stone offering basins and some fragments of inscribed limestone. Behind this chamber is a smaller chamber X (or the serdab) which was filled with hand packed dark debris. On top of mastaba 3004 was sand and hard packed debris. The sand is also being cleared from the east side of mastaba 3031. West of 3003 is a step-faced mastaba 3015; the space between the two having a layer of sand and underneath a layer of hard packed dark debris. In the sand near the surface was a large fragment of inscribed limestone stele. Behind the stele in the offering room X of mastaba 2093 [= G 3093] (i.e. Medady), was a serdab. In the debris were a few fragments of what was apparently a wooden statuette.
