    • Remarks Owner of G 3098b (second extension on G 3098). Daughter (?) of Neferhetepes and granddaughter (?) of Duare (possibly same individual as Duaenre owner of G 5110). Limestone false door (UPM_E13519) and limestone offering stone (UPM_E13520) inscribed for Neferhetepes-nedjes, identified on both as [rxt nswt Xkrt nswt] royal acquaintance, royal ornament; both found in situ in G 3098b. Vertical inscriptions on false door jambs: "King's son of his body, (Prince) Duare; his daughter, the royal acquaintance, Neferhetepes" (Neferhetepes-nedjes traces her royal lineage by naming her mother Neferhetepes and grandfather Duare). There may be a connection between family of Neferhetepes-nedjes and Iymery (owner G 3098).
