Notes on the pyramid of Abu Roash

Abu Rawash (Abû Rawâsh). Pyramid of Radjedef (Razedef).
Notes read:
'The pyramid of Abu Roash is perhaps before the fourth dynasty. Its builder was Ramen... [<-N5-mn-//->], probably one of the earlier unclassed Menkara kings, as Menkara of the fourth is known already at Gizeh, the third pyramid being his. the bit of cartouche I found on a scrap of a diorite statue(?) which lay among the chips of granite sarcophagus, &c, just before the doorway. That the pyramid was finished is clear by the finding of traces of sarcophagus & statue, and by the large heaps of chips of worked granite left around it, from cutting the granite casing to pieces at a later time.
The lining of the rock-hewn passage and chamber was torn out 40 or 50 years ago: the chamber, now 30x70 ft, would be narrowed by lining enough to be roofed by slanting slabs [drawing] as usual. That there was granite in part of the inside is shewn by the large heaps of chips reaching some way in front of the entrance.'

[60] "False door" of stone, seen in No 66.

Meidum (Maidum). Tomb of Nefermaat (Nefermaet). View showing Facade and Hall.
Caption reads:
'"False door" of stone, seen in No 66.
On the larger figures is seen the method of sinking holes in the
stone, to give a firmer hold to the inlaying of colored plaster
which is now removed.'
