(12) G 7102 (continued)
[G 7102 E, 25-1-122 (continued)]
came from G 7101.
Other fragments bore the following titles:
[GLYPHS]

G 7102 F: Pit and chamber finished. No objects. Chamber is at west.
G 7102 C: Not worked on.

(13) Avenue G 0 and G 7214
To the north of G 7210, in Avenue G 0, another mastaba has appeared. Its east wall appears to be of stone, and its north wall of rubble plastered with mud. The latter wall has a batter on it. This structure is now being cleared.
On the south of mastaba, at least, between it and G 7210 are two pits G 7214 A and G 7214 B. The former is finished, and has a chamber at the south. No objects. Just to the north of G 7214 B, and perhaps belonging with it is a stela [lintel 25-5-3] lying face upwards, inscribed with the name [GLYPHS] [Ipty].
The position of mastaba and pits is as under:

(14) G 7211
The end room of this mastaba, at north, is now being cleared. Thieves had trenched a place through the debris in this room from south to north in order to find the room containing the stela (see sketch over page). The trench is filled with their dirty black debris.
Under the north wall of this room we came

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.
  • Ipty (in G 7214)

    • Type Mentioned on page
    • Remarks Limestone lintel (25-5-3) inscribed for Ipty; found reused as roofing in G 7214 B.
  • Qar (G 7101)

    • Type Mentioned on page
    • Remarks Owner of G 7101. Appears multiple times in tomb decoration (chapel relief, architrave, door jambs, pillar), identified variously as [jmj-r kAt nbt xntj-S mnnfr-mrjjra Xrj tp nswt sS a nswt xft-Hr mAa] overseer of all works, palace attendant of (the pyramid-town) Mennefer-Meryre (Pepi I), he who is at the head of the king, true royal document scribe in the presence; in situ in G 7102. Possibly same individual as Qar (in G 7102), son of Idu (owner of G 7102). 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.
