Hey this image is taken from Lefebvre's tomb report 'Le tombeau de Petosiris'

In the plan, I understand that the two bold sections of the tomb are the rectangular pronaos (vestibule) at the bottom connected to the naos, the square structure, which also contained the burial shaft. However i'm struggling to understand the other walls around the tomb, the more faint lines that seem to be forming rooms attached to the main tomb. Are these lines thinner because they don't belong to this tomb? Are they the subterranean features of the tomb?

Any help would be great.

When I enlarge the image I can't clearly read the legend at the bottom, but I believe the difference only states a different material. Have you got a bigger version of this image?

Gustave Lefebvre : Le tombeau de Petosiris. - 1923. - Pl. I.

I think it is the underground system, so the actual tomb. I can not remember on surrounding buildings next to the chapel. When I was there some years ago I could walk around.

Greetings, Lutz.

Sorry I can't take a better copy of the image, I'm using a pdf of the tomb report so it's pretty difficult to zoom in and keep it readable.

Yeah I can't find any reports or descriptions mentioning side rooms or attached buildings. I'm guessing it's just the subterranean burial feature.

Thanks.
