Comments

Interpreted by Petrie et al. as Narmer; by Kaiser 1982 and Kaplony 1963 as Scorpion; and by Dreyer 1992 as Crocodile.
Kahl 1994 dates this Dynasty 0, while Regulski dates this “(Naqada III A-B)”.

Editor's Note: The reading of "Narmer" is not plausible. The most likely interpretation is Dreyer's reading of Crocodile.
