The shafts of mastaba G 2093 [= G 3093] showed how the presence of one shaft or chamber influenced the construction of a subsequent one. Here the shafts were sunk in regular order from south to north. Shaft [A] was sunk to a depth of 505 cm. and a chamber (II) made at the south, nothing in the vicinity interfering with this. Then another chamber (I) was formed at the west on the same level.  When B came to be sunk, there remained sufficient room between the roof of the other western chamber and the rock surface to allow a chamber to be made on the west and even carried south beyond the line of the shaft without interfering with A. C was carried down to the same level as B but there was space for only a small chamber, which was placed somewhat north of the shaft. The masons working in D did not apparently know of the existence of the chamber in C. When they had reached the same depth they began the chamber at the west. When quarrying towards
 This second chamber most probably was considerably later, even after the other shafts and chambers were finished.
