  • Remarks
    Mastaba is last of nine major tombs (as well as two "potential" ones) built in a line along south side of Khufu Pyramid, off southeast corner of Khufu Pyramid, east of Mastaba X. Not described by Junker. Junker assigned numbers I to XI for this row of mastabas. Mastaba II was not assigned as the space where II would have been was filled with collection of smaller mastabas. Reisner assigned numbers I to X sequentially to the nine major mastabas that were actually built (and Lepsius 52 = Junker's Mastaba V = Reisner's G IV S).
