Idu was a supervisor of priests during the reign of Pepi I.
Sometimes called Idut, he was concerned with the
maintenance of the pyramid complexes of Khufu and
as well as the ceremonies. This was a very important
position with lasting importance of the tombs and the
rituals conducted there. Some of the pyramids and temple
complexes became small cities in which everyone had a
part in the funeral rites that were conducted there.
