Titles[edit]

Burial[edit]

Inenek-Inti was buried in a pyramid at Saqqara. Her pyramid is part of the pyramid complex of her husband Pepi I. Her complex is located just west of that of Queen Nubwenet. Inenek-Inti may have been slightly more important than Nubwenet as her pyramid and mortuary temple are slightly larger than those of Nubwenet's. Inenek-Inti's complex is surrounded by a perimeter wall. Her mortuary temple was built so that the building wound around a corner. The mortuary temple included a small pillared hall and an open courtyard which featured several offerings tables.[3]
