    Barrel Vaulted Mastaba
  • Site Type
    Mud-brick mastaba
  • Remarks
    An unusual barrel-vaulted offering space with a burial shaft below is located just to the south of the center of the east wall. This, plus the re-arrangement of bricks around the arch, makes it probable that this space was constructed after the mastaba was completed. The west wall of the offering space has traces of light blue and brown painted white plaster, indicating that designs and/or images were originally there.
