Comments

This object was a surface find.
Schulman and Gophna 1981 attribute the inscription to Scorpion; Amiran, Ilan, and Arnon 1983 and Gophna 1987 attribute it to Narmer; de Cree 1991 attributes it to Scorpion. Regulski dates it “(Naqada IIIA-B?)”. Kahl 1994 attributes it to 0 Dynasty(?).
According to Amiran and van den Brink, p.38, n.6, "Although the present authors are of equal opinion that what has been preserved is part of a
serekh, it is not possible to attribute it to any specific king, due to its incomplete state of preservation."
According to Levy et al 2001, this is too fragmentary to identify a king's name.
