  • Site Type
    Mud-brick mastaba
  • Remarks
    The unfinished rock-cut substructure of ABC 245 contains an outer chapel (ABC 238) with two uninscribed false doors and a burial chamber (ABC 239) with a rock-cut coffin pit. This substructure seems to have been carved after the original construction of the mastaba, perhaps by someone who was a member of the same family as the original owner.
