Meydum, Mastaba of Nefermaat,
The mastaba of Nefermaat and Atet was built in three/four major phases.
The several phases are especially clear at the chapel of Nefermaat
the core chapel with the decorated walls
the whole mastaba was greatly enlarged
the mastaba was enlarged for a second time, blocking access to the decorated chapel; as a result, a new chapel was build
a mud brick chapel was build in front of the mastaba
the reconstruction follows mainly: El-Khouli 1991: pl. 13
