Cem 1200
The nucleus cemetery Cem1200 consists of ten mastabas in three E-W rows and five N-S lines. All ten of the original cores are of type II a, and nine are of the normal size of the Western Field.
These nine of normal size are in regular rows and lines, separated by streets and avenues.
The southern E-W row contains four cores, G1203, G1205, G1207, and G1209.
North of this row is the middle E-W row of three mastabas, G1223 (alined with G1203), G1225 (alined with G1205), and G1227 (alined with G1207).
The northern E-W row contains only two mastabas, G1233 (alined with G1223) and G1235 (alined with G1225).
Four of these cores had an addition or annex on the north end with burial-shaft for husband or wife. The tenth core G1201, also of type II a, was of larger size and situated east of the southern row, east of G1203. Its northern end was alined with the northern ends of the mastabas of the southern row.
All these cores were designed to be finished as one-shaft mastabas, and each of the original shafts was a 2-metre shaft with a lined burial-chamber of type I.
North of G1201 and east of G1223 was a large c.b. mastaba, G1221, the earliest mastaba added after the construction of the nucleus cores; the avenue between the southern and the middle row of nucleus cores was also occupied by secondary mastabas extending between G1201and G1221. This mastaba on independent site north of G1201 and east of G1223, is not belonging to the nucleus cemetery, but built later.

Passage: rock cut, 1.8 x 1.1 m. and 2.2 m. high; 0.42 m. from roof of rock-cut passage to roof of chamber; this high passage was designed to permit the cutting of the chamber from the roof downwards; after the cutting of the chamber a groove was cut along each side of the passage at a level 1.14 m. above the floor of the passage and in these grooves were set two thick slabs (lying E-W) to form the roof of the final passage; thus a space 0.6 m. high was left between the tops of slabs and rock roof of passage ; this space was certainly closed on the inside by the lining and probably filled with masonry on the shaft side; the final passage 1.7 x 1.1 and 1.14 high; length through the lining, 1.95 m.; floor of passage on level with top of pavement.
