    Djedkare, Userkare II, and Merenre I and Pepi II barred by date of construction (GAR 1935), certainly Hordjedkhau by final date of construction (GAR 1938). Djedkare Isesi (Horus name: [Dd-xaw] Djedkhau) and Neferefre (Horus name: [nfr-xaw] Neferkhau) contested as possible reconstructions of names on sealing in Giza Necropolis 2 (p. 53), Merenre (Horus name: [anx-xaw] Ankhkhau) or Pepi II (Horus name: [nTr-xaw] Netjerkhau) are suggested instead.
