  • Remarks
    Small mastaba built in street north of G 2170 and south of G 2220, against north side of G 2154 and south of G 2156. Originally called G 2155 by Reisner but renamed G 2154a in 1938. Drawings exist for additional shafts G 2155 F and G 2155 G, which do not appear on the cemetery area plan. Shaft F seems to have been renamed G 2154a E, and the shallow pit G may no longer have existed when the area was re-excavated in 1938.
