  • Site Type
    Stone-built mastaba
  • Shafts
    4 shafts
  • Remarks
    ABC 885 was built up against the east wall of ABC 884 and contains at least 4 shafts, but it is extraordinary that there is no cult place. Possibly the individuals represented by the shafts were related to the owner of the above mastaba and utilized his cult places, but that is only one possibility.
