Comments

Peden 2001 reads it as Narmer. Darnell and Darnell 1997 and Raffaele 2003 read it as Nar(mer). Friedman and Hendrickx, and Tallet and Laisney 2012 date it to the reign of Narmer by comparing it to the inscriptions in Wadi Qash.
Jiménez-Serrano 2003 says that it is not a king's name, but was written close to the reign of Ka.
According to Pätznick (personal communication, 2017), there is no trace of Narmer's name.
Regulski dates this to Naqada IIIB.
