Section 7 - Associated Shafts and Burials

Written by William Kelly Simpson

There are four shafts with burial chambers within the area of the reconstructed mastaba. The chief shaft with the burial of Qar descends just south of the serdab and north of the western interior chapel chamber. The second shaft lies just west of the offering slab in the alcove of the eastern interior subterranean chapel chamber, and would seem to be associated with this chapel, perhaps as the burial of Qar’s wife.

Section 9 - Titles, Family, and Dependents of Qar

Written by William Kelly Simpson

Qar's mother was Khenut, his wife's name is Gefi, who was a prophetess of Hathor. One of his sons bears the name of Idu. It is generally accepted that Qar is the father of the Idu of the mastaba G 7I02. The opposite, where Idu would be the father of Qar, also cannot be excluded. In the chapel of Qar, the Idu is represented with his sister Benjet. There is a Benjet in the chapel of Idu, where she is presented as his daughter. Another sister is called Tjetuet.
