  • Tomb Owner
    Sekhemka (G 2360)
  • Excavator
    George Andrew Reisner, American, 1867–1942
  • Alternate Reisner No
    G 5390
    G 5490
  • Site Type
    Stone-built mastaba
  • Shafts
    G 2360 Serdab; G 2360 A; G 2360 B; G 2360 C; G 2360 D; G 2360 E; G 2360 F; G 2360 G; G 2360 L; G 2360 M; G 2360 N; G 2360 T; G 2360 U; G 2360 V
  • Remarks
    Because G 2360 did not line up exactly with the large mastaba in the prior row (G 5290 & G 5390), Reisner provisionally called G 2360 either G 5390 or G 5490 before probably deciding to leave the name of this mastaba as G 2360.
