The traces of its earlier offering room can be seen in Pl. 9. Even the smaller mastaba G 2092 [= G 3092] built over the older one already described seems to have followed this early type. Its offering room was a single chamber built against the eastern facade. Afterwards another room was added. The first one was lighted by a small window high up in the north wall.

In only one of these examples is the serdab traceable. In G 3030 it was in the core just inside the retaining wall and behind the alcove where as above said, a large niche or stele should have been.

The next step in the larger mastabas was the construction of a small offering room inside the line of the eastern facade
