Ancient People

  • Nakhti (in G 7101)

    • Type Attested
    • Remarks Brother ([sn=f] his brother) of Qar (owner of G 7101). Appears in chapel relief in tomb of Qar, west wall of court C (bottom row of offering bearers, depicted pouring water), identified as [jmj-r Hmw-kA] overseer of ka-priests; in situ in G 7101. Also appears on displaced block of relief (25-5-45), depicted carrying large fish; assigned by Simpson (GM 2, pl. Vb) to north wall of lower stairs in G 7101. Probably buried in shaft G 7101 B. East, south, and west walls of G 7101 B burial chamber and broken sarcophagus lid inscribed for Nakhti, identified as [Sps nswt smr sS Xrj-tp nswt] noble of the king, companion, scribe, royal chamberlain; in situ in G 7101 B. Appears on two fitting fragments of relief (MFA 25.3041.1 + MFA 25.3041.2); originally attributed to G 7102 (based on notation on fragments), however, Simpson (GM 2, p. 13) suggests proposed destroyed chapel of Nakhti, possibly located west of upper stairs of Qar complex and north of G 7101 B, as place of origin. Also appears on fragment of relief (24-12-135), identified as [Xrj-tp nswt Hm-nTr... Sps nswt] royal chamberlain, priest of..., noble of the king; found displaced in Avenue G 0 (north of subsidiary pyramid G I-a).
  • Qar (G 7101)

    • Type Owner
    • 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.
