Petrie/Brunton 1924: pl. LXXXI

Petrie/Brunton 1924: 4: "Here was an open courtyard, without any pit in it; a doorway led to a rock chamber, 36 feet wide, and 16 feet back; the variations in the dimensions are shown on the plan. This chamber contained pottery and four coffins, in which remained three women and a child. In the floor is a large pit, in which were remains of a very large coffin. It was lying in the pit (...) containing a man's skeleton and a damaged headrest. The pottery is a very useful series of this age".
