    • Type Individual - Ancient
    • Remarks Owner of G 2353. Chapel entrance door jambs inscribed for Herunefer, identified as [Hm-nTr (...) Hm-nTr xwfw (rx) nswt] priest of ..., priest of Khufu, royal (acquaintance); in situ in G 2353. "Reisner suggests that the builder of the doorway at the north of G 2353 may have been the son or grandson of the owner of G 2352, and that the doorway may even have been moved from G 2352 to the northern mastaba when G 2353 was built. There is nothing, however, in the texts (titles, names, family relationships) from the three inscribed areas [two false doors in G 2352, door jambs in G 2353] to indicate any sort of relationship" (Giza Mastabas 4, pp. 33-34).
