  • Remarks
    Abu-Bakr Excavation (1950-51). Recleared in 2000 by Cairo Univ - Brown Univ Expedition. Lepsius 19, Mastaba X, and Lepsius 20-21 were probably roughly contemporaneous and may have formed a family complex within a brick-built palace-facade enclosure wall, along with a double row of small, contiguous mud-brick mastabas just east of Lepsius 19 and Mastaba X (ABC 2 - ABC 4, ABC 7 - ABC 19).
