Mastaba of Idu


Idu[1] was an official during the Sixth Dynasty, buried in Giza East Field[2], tomb G7102. He probably lived and served during the reign of Pepi I Meryre.[3][1] He is the father of Qar whose tomb is nearby and Bendjet, buried in G7215.[4]

G7102 lies in cemetery G7000 east of the related tomb of Qar. The mastaba exterior superstructure has disappeared.

The tomb depicts several members of his family:[4]

  • Wife: Meretyotes. Note than this woman is not the mother of Qar (G7101).
  • Daughters: Bendjet (identified as the owner of G7215), Iry
  • Sons: Qar, Idu and Hemi
