It is of exactly similar workmanship to that of Narmer, and is no doubt a fragment of another monument of that king.
Narmer and Khsekhemui are, as we shall see, two of the first monarchs of all Egypt.
Narmer, who possibly also bore the name of Sma, "the Uniter," conquered the North.
Khsekhemui probably lived later than Narmer, and we may suppose that his conquest was in reality a re-conquest.
So Narmer (or Betjumer) found his way out of his proper place at the beginning of the 1st Dynasty.
This may be the case with Narmer, or, as his name ought possibly to be read, Betjumer.
Narmer is therefore the last of the ancient kings of Hierakonpolis, the last of Manetho's "Spirits."
We have seen that the Northern Egyptian possessed similar fortress-cities which were captured by Narmer.
