Comments

Von der Way 1989 states that the object was found in an archaeological stratum dating to the period between Dynasty 0 and the First Dynasty.
Von der Way 1993 suggests either Ny-Hor or Narmer.
Van den Brink 2001 and Jiménez-Serrano 2003 attribute this to Ny-Hor.
Jiménez-Serrano 2003 argues that the absence of a falcon on the
serekh argues against the name Ny-Hor, but suggests instead just “Ny”.
Dated Naqada III A-B by Regulski.
Pätznick 2009 and Raffaele identify this inscription as Narmer.
Wilkinson 1999 identifies it as “Narmer(?)”.
Morenz 2004 rejects interpreting the horizontal line as an abstracted catfish.
