  • Nedjemu (in G 2420)

    • Type Individual - Ancient
    • Remarks Headless limestone seated statue (36-5-29 = MFA 37.642) inscribed for Nedjemu, identified as [xntj-S pr-aA] palace attendant of the Great House; fragmentary limestone standing statue (36-5-31 = MFA 37.662 deaccessioned = Memphis 1987.2.1) inscribed for Nedjemu (dedicated by his son Seneb), identified as [sHD wabw xntj-S] inspector of wab-priests, palace attendant; seated statue and base of standing statue found in G 2420 D, body of standing statue found in G 2411 Z. Porter & Moss (p. 93) attribute G 2420 to Nedjemu on the basis of two statues inscribed for him but found displaced in shaft D. However, they do not mention the three in situ false doors in room b, the southernmost (and, presumably, main) one of which is inscribed for Khufudjedef, suggesting that he was the owner of G 2420.
