  • Remarks
    Roth's mastaba G 2230+2231 along the northern edge of the western cemetery should not to be confused with Reisner's G 2231 X which lies against east side of G 2177. The three shafts in G 2230 are incorrectly labeled (south to north) A, B, C on the area map EG000494 and in Reisner's unpublished manuscript description (GN3_L12_p179). Their correct designations are preserved on a sketched map in the excavation diary (Vol.33.p.758), which shows the shafts running from south to north C, A, B with shaft A (central shaft) being the main shaft with burial chamber.
