  • Site Type
    Mud-brick mastaba
  • Remarks
    It can be established that these seven contiguous mastabas (ABC 35 and ABC 70-75) were built sequentially from south to north. Collapsed mud brick from the northern wall of Lepsius 20-21 against the east face of ABC 35 suggests that these mastabas, like Mastaba Y, antedate the "Persen Complex."
