  • Site Type
    Shafts only (no superstructure)
  • Remarks
    Archaeological evidence suggests that Lepsius 20-21 is later in date than shaft ABC 32 (and thus, presumably, also the other two nearby shafts, ABC 46 and 47). As Lepsius 19, Mastaba X, and Lepsius 20-21 were probably roughly contemporaneous, this means these shafts antedate the "Persen Complex."
