[possibly by George Horsfield]
Proceeded with Syagh [sic] shaft grave and retrieved a small pot and a lamp. One grave out of four awaits excavation. The excavation of the group SE of El Habis proceeded but the result was disappointing as most of the graves had been rifled. In one case the corpse in an unrifled tomb may be a Christian reuse. This was in the SE group. The SW group is proceeding and from the shaft of one came fragments of alabaster pots with covers – about 4 but many of the fragments are missing.
