  • Remarks
    In January 1903, Reisner sent Mr. A. C. Mace with a small party of trained workmen for a preliminary excavation of the western edge of the Western Cemetery. He excavated about 25 tombs west of Lepsius 19 and concluded it was more feasible to start from G 2000 (Lepsius 23) and work westward.
