This tomb was cleared out today, no objects being found. It was found that the bust of the deceased [Idu], below the false door, had the two hands laid out flat on the ledge on which it stood, palms up. Along west side of chamber, about 13 cm high, is a narrow ledge of stones. The ledge before the niche has a stone shaped like the [GLYPHS] sign; and the stone before the bust has a similar stone. The ledge south of the bust has been removed.

- 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.
