    description needs clarification
  • Problems/Questions
    Problem; this description is deceptive because this looks like the the exterior SW corner of the inset interior offering room, looking NE means what is visible is the S exterior wall and the back (W) wall of the "offering niche", in other word the faces of the walls that would have been covered with the fill of the mastaba; filling N of the niche is only visible slightly and that would the be the filling of the N section of the interior of the niche // view from SW corrected to read looking NE
