  • Khufudjedef (G 2420)

    • Type Tomb Owner
    • Remarks Possible owner of G 2420. South false door inscribed for Khufudjedef, identified as [jmj-r wpwt xntjw-S pr-aA wab nswt Hm-nTr Hr mDdw Hm-nTr bjkwj-nbw] overseer of commissions of palace attendants of the Great House, royal wab-priest, priest of the Horus Medjedu (Khufu), priest of the Two Horuses of Gold (Khufu); in situ in G 2420, room b. 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.
