Comments

Raffaelle describes the inscription as a private name, "Djehwty-Mer' (?)", and (Nar)mer?. Dated Naqada IIIB-C1 bby Regulski. Dated Narmer(?) by MacArthur 2010: 85; this was based on the presence of the chisel (personal communication, 2018). Von der Way 1993 identifies this inscription as probably Narmer; but Wilkinson 1999 suggests it is not a royal name, but rather the name of a member of a local or regional elite class. Petrie et al. 1913 identified this as a private person, Tahutimer, "clearly of the same age as Narmer".

Editor's Note: The bird in the inscription is clearly not a falcon. This makes it unlikely that the inscription refers to a king's name.
