(1) Street G 7100 and G 7111
Street G 7100: east of G 7110. In this street work was only done on:
G 7111 D: Men working in pit. From the debris came a square limestone libation tank [25-1-656], with two receptacles. Length 41 cm, width 29 cm, and height 15 cm. See No. 12 below.
G 7111 E: Was not worked on.
G 7111 A: Not worked on.

(2) Avenue G 0
Men worked today in same place as yesterday in Avenue G 0, i.e. to about approximately 15 meters north of mastaba G 7210. Beneath the debris of Ptolemaic era, where they found yesterday the fragments of alabaster hawk, they came across an inscribed facade of a tomb. The facade is about 850 cm north of the core of mastaba G 7210, and is just to the east of pit G 7102 C. This tomb, which we have numbered G 7102, is described below, see No. 14.
Another two fragments of alabaster hawk came from debris of G 7102 C. From the inscription on the coffin of this tomb, it appears that the tomb belongs to G 7102, for both bear the name and titles of [GLYPHS] [Idu]. See No. 14.
G 7412, G 7412 E, F not worked on.

Ancient People

  • Idu (G 7102)

    • Type Mentioned on page
    • Remarks Owner of G 7102. Appears multiple times in tomb decoration (chapel relief, architrave, door jambs, statuary), identified variously as [jmj-r Hwt wrt jmj-r sSw mrt xntj-S mnnfr-ppj Xrj tp nswt] overseer of the great chapel, overseer of scribes of the meret-serfs, palace attendant of (the pyramid-town) Mennefer-Pepi, he who is at the head of the king; in situ in G 7102. Possibly same individual as Idu (in G 7101), son of Qar (owner of G 7101). The relationship between Qar and Idu is difficult to determine; it seems certain that they are father and son, but it is not clear which is which since they each have a son named after the other (i.e. Qar has a son named Idu, Idu has a son named Qar). Qar (G 7101) has a sister named Bendjyt who may be identical to Bendjet, a daughter of Idu (G 7102), in which case Idu would be the father of Qar, but this is not at all certain.
