RCD samples of both the mortuary temple and mastaba were taken in the 1995 study.

Temple sample range (calibrated, BC):
2865-2831
2821-2806
2780-2770
2761-2717
2710-2660
2650-2624

2878-2618 (93% probability range)
26111-2595
2594-2582

There were 5 samples taken from the mastaba but they do not give the calibrated results in the study. See pages 1307-1308, 1316-1317.
