Figure referenced by Matthew Douglas Adams, "In the Footsteps of Looters: Assessing the Damage from the 2011 Looting in the North Cemetery at Abydos," Journal of the American Research Center in Egypt (JARCE) 51 (2015): 5–63, doi:

Note Fig. 178. General view to northeast of the rear part of a large courtyard tomb superstructure, probably Mace’s tomb “D57,” which belonged to a vizier of Dynasties 25-26, Nespamedu. The area in the foreground probably corresponds to that shown in Mace’s photograph seen in fig. 179. The wall between the first court and the rear part of the tomb, probably corresponding to the large wall shown in the background of Mace’s photograph, is visible on the surface, as well as parts of the southeast side walls. In the foreground is the wind-blown sand filling the pit left by Mace’s excavation of the shafts and burial chambers.
