    Possible owner of G 4522. Fragmentary limestone standing pair statue (14-3-16 + 14-3-23 + 14-3-32 = MFA 21.2602) inscribed for Kap and his wife Hy; Kap identified as [jrj-xtmt n pr-aA xntj-S] he who is in charge of the sealed goods of the Great House, palace attendant; fragments found in debris between G 4520 and G 4620, attributed to G 4522. Fragment of limestone seated pair statue (14-3-31 = MFA 14.1461) inscribed for Kap, identified as [rx nswt xntj-S n pr-aA jmAxw xr nTr aA] royal acquaintance, palace attendant of the Great House, revered before the Great God (belongs with 14-3-24 = MFA 14.1455, fragment of limestone seated pair statue inscribed for Niankhhathor); found east of G 4520, attributed to G 4522. Two women (or same woman with two names) have been identified as wife of Kap: Hy on standing pair statue, Niankhhathor on seated pair statue. G 4522 tentatively assigned to Kap based on fragmentary statue finds; presumably because only evidence for a chapel (assuming statues originated in a chapel) in area where fragments were found is G 4522. Might be same Kap who appears (identified as [sn Dt] brother of the funerary estate) on limestone false door (MFA 21.3081) inscribed for Khufuankh (owner of G 4520).
