Comments

Fischer 1963 and Pätznick 2009 attributed this inscription to Narmer. Regulski dates it “(Naqada III B-C)”. Kahl 1994 attributes it to Dynasty 0. Van den Brink 2001 attributes this to “Horus(?)”. Jiménez-Serrano 2003 says that it is not a king's name.
Wilkinson 1999 says that this inscription almost certainly refers to an unknown king's name, although the possibility exists that it may just be a general symbol of royal authority.
According to Hendrickx 2001, this inscription does not represent a specific royal name but represents royal insignia.
The
Metropolitan Museum website shows the vase, but not the serekh, dates it to Naqada III - Dynasty I, but mentions no king's name.
