G 7101 Y: This was cleared out today. It has a single small chamber at the east. No objects.

(12) G 7102
G 7102 A, B, C, D, E, F. These pits were worked on today as follows:
G 7102 A: Pit cleared. It has two chambers on the east, one above the other. The upper one is about same size as pit and is cleared. Lower one being worked on.
G 7102 B: Pit and chamber cleared. The chamber is at the west and contains fragments with rectangular coffin, many stones. Coffin not inscribed (broken up into small pieces). Body lays on west side of chamber.
G 7102 D: Two pits are connected below by means of a hole, perhaps made by thieves; the northern pit is cleared and has no chamber. The chamber of the southern pit is to the south and is now being cleared.

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.
