In chamber Y a later burial chamber had been constructed in mud brick, and roofed with large stone blocks, the entrance being through X. The original offering chamber had a vaulted roof constructed of mud bricks, the under side of which was molded so as to form a needed surface; these were stuccoed and painted red, while the walls of the chamber were painted white and blue (?). Photograph C50 shows the alcove at the southern end of this room. This had a rounded arch of mud brick with moldings worked out in stucco, and this arch supported the reeded vaulting along this side of the room. In the debris of the chamber were many fragments of inscribed limestone, a small piece of well preserved wood and the base of a pottery bowl of thick ware. All the shafts of this mastaba are being cleared; they contain sand and dark limestone debris.
West of mastaba 3032, which is a small, step faced, rubble filled mastaba built against the south side of 3033, we are clearing away the sand and hand packed limestone debris. The railroad is being relaid farther to the north. In the surface sand here was a small fragment of inscribed limestone.
