  • Site Type
    Rubble-built mastaba
  • Remarks
    It appears that some stone work had been removed from the east face of ABC 108; an open area to the east (ABC 859) is aligned with the space where the stone work was originally located. It may have formed a chapel or offering place associated with ABC 108. To the east of ABC 859, a plastered mud brick structure (ABC 858) may have formed an offering platform for ABC 859 and ABC 108.
