Comments

Kahl 1994 and Regulski both identify this inscription as (Narmer). Van den Brink 2001 describes the inscription as "unreadable". Kroeper 1986-1987 dates the serekh to the period Iry-Hor - Narmer.

Editor’s Note: Scholars sometimes cite Kroeper 1988 as attributing this inscription (her fig. 140) to Narmer. In fact, the article does not explicitly attribute this inscription to Narmer. The article does discuss another inscription (her fig. 141, our Source No. #0121) from the same archaeological context (group 3c) as 0122, which is commonly attributed to Narmer.
