Comments

This object was a surface find.
Amiran, Ilan, and Arnon 1983, Illan 2002, and Pätznick 2009 attribute this inscription Narmer.
Van den Brink 2001 read it as Ny-Hor by, whom he hypothesized was probably a regional king, earlier then Narmer.
Jiménez-Serrano 2003 also says Ny-Hor, but argues that the absence of a falcon on the
serekh argues against the name Ny-Hor, and suggests instead just Ny.
Levy et al. 2001 are also advocates of Ny-Hor.
Andelović 1995 describes it as "probably a
serekh of Narmer".
