Comments

Grimm 1998 as well as Grimm and Schoske 2000 identify the inscription as Narmer.
Regulski identifies the inscription as “(Narmer)” based on typology.
Hendrickx (personal communication, 2015) says that "a Narmer identification is not entirely impossible", and adds that "one would expect a better quality of writing on a good quality statue."
Dreyer (personal communication, 2016) identifies it as Scorpion.
Raffaele 2003 reads the inscription as Nar(mer) or Scorpion.
According to Pätznick (personal communication, 2017) this could be king Scorpion, not Narmer.
