Comments

Although this inscription was identified by Petrie et al 1913 and others as Narmer, Kaplony 1965b and others have identified it as Aha based on infra-red photographs.
Mawdsley 2012 has shown conclusively that it should be identified as Aha, and provides a history of its attribution.

Editor's Note:
Although it is now clear that this inscription belongs to Aha, it is included here because of the historical controversy.
