  • Remarks
    Appears as small boy standing in front of Meresankh III on western pillar of north wall in main room, identified as [sA nswt n Xt=f] king's son of his body; in situ in G 7530-7540. Both figure and inscription are painted rather than carved, and his name (compounded with that of a later Fifth Dynasty king) seems to indicate that he is a subsequent addition to the tomb (perhaps a grandson or great-grandson of Meresankh III?) Alternately, he may be the same individual as Niuserre, owner of G 8140 and brother of Nebemakhet (owner of G 8130); hence a son of Meresankh III, whose name was later altered in G 7530-7540.
