Comments

Although this inscription is listed as a Narmer serekh in Pätznick (2009: pp. 314-320 (10.1)), this was an error. According to Pätznick (personal communication, 2017), it is actually from later in the 1st Dynasty.
Jiménez-Serrano 2003 says that it “might be dated to the moment which followed the reign of Narmer.” According to Petrie 1903, the name of the king has not survived.
