- Type Owner
- 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.
- Type Attested
- Remarks Son ([sA=f mrjj=f] his beloved son) of Idu (owner of G 7102). Appears on east door jamb of offering room entrance, identifed as [sAb sS] juridicial scribe (name and identical titles appear also on east wall of offering room above first statue niche). Also appears chapel relief, south wall (top register, in mock combat with his brother Hemi), and west wall (south end, second register, at head of line of offering bearers, censing before his father); in situ in G 7102. Incised jamb blocks (25-1-118 + 25-1-121 + 25-1-122 + 25-1-123 + 25-1-124 = MFA 25.1518) inscribed with different titles and name of Qar may belong to different individual; found in shaft 7102 E (originally from western chamber off middle level court). Possibly same individual as Qar (owner of G 7101).
