Comments

Amiran et al. 1983 and Ilan 2002 attribute this to either Narmer or Aha.
Van den Brink describes it as a "fragment" and makes no attempt to date it.
According to Levy et al 2001, this is too fragmentary to identify a king's name.

Editor's Note: Narmer is more likely then Aha because of the frequency of Narmer inscriptions in Canaan and the paucity of Aha inscriptions.
