the alcove at the south end was determined by the already existing mastabas. From being a part of a definite plan it was used only where possible. Of this G 2086 [= G 3086] was a good example. The space here was so cramped that this mastaba was built against the north end of G 2085 [= G 3085] and its corriddor occupied the space behind G 2084 [= G 3084]. The irregular space left between G 2083 [= G 3083], 2084 [= G 3084] and 2085 [= G 3085] was utilized for the alcove offering room. Another unexcavated mastaba at the north made it necessary to carry the corridor around the northen end to get an outlet. Here just outside the wall was built a serdab roofed with slabs (F1 on Plan 1 and Pl. 30). Another example of this later alcove type was G 3036, where the existince of G 3033 conditioned the pla of the offering room (B3-4 on Plan 1).
