    • Remarks Owner of Hetepi (2) (unnumbered mastaba, perhaps a later reuse/modification of the secondary (northern) cult niche of Hetepi (1); exact location uncertain). False door (Turin S.1847) inscribed for Hetepi, identified as [sHD xntjw-S pr-aA xntj-S pr-aA Hrj-sStA] inspector of palace attendants of the Great House, palace attendant of the Great House, secretary; found in mastaba of Hetepi [Hetepi (2)]. His identical name and titles may suggest that the owner of Hetepi (2) is a son or other family member of the original Hetepi.
