Family of Qar

Mother: Ḫnwt. C north wall; E, north wall.

Wife: Gfi. Titles ḥmt.f mrt.f; rḫt nswt; ḥmt-nṯr [Ḥwt- Ḥr]. C west wall.

Son(?): Idw. Titles: sꜣ.f mry.f. Room E, north wall; sꜣ.(f), north of stela. B; East wall south side, 4. Titles (without designation of son preserved): sšꜥ nswt ḫft ḥrsꜣbimy-r sšw, A 1 (stairs).

Brother: sn.f Nḫti. B north wall (stairs). See G 7101 B.

Sisters: sntf mrt.f Ṯtwt and sntf mrt.f Bnḏt. D north wall east side. As noted, if the latter is the same as the daughter of Idu, then Qar of G 7101 is the son of Idu of G 7102. A text in black ink on the E wall of G 7215 D, 1, chamber reads: ḥtp di nswt Inp ḳrs.t(i).s nfr ẖkrt wꜥtt imꜣḫt Bnḏt. This individual is probably the sister of Qar and was thus buried in G 7215.

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.
