I am sorry if I being behind the times, but I went to a Friends of the Petrie Museum lecture in London today, given by Aidan Dodson. In passing, he mentioned that a new Pharaoh had been identified, possibly another ahmose. Does anyone know anything about this, please?

J. Peter Phillips : King Ahmose 0 ( + 1 ?). - In: Ancient Egypt Magazine 72. - 2012. - pp. 25 - 27 :
Quote:
... [On Page 25 :] ... In the last issue of the magazine, AE 71, I reported that, during an excavation conducted by the Centre Franco-Égyptien d’Étude des Temples de Karnak (CFEETK) beside the Temple of Ptah, remains of a Seventeenth Dynasty doorway had been found upon which were recorded the cartouches of a pharaoh whose name had previously been known only from the Turin Canon. This pharoah, Senakht-en-Ra, ruled for a very short period, perhaps only one year, at the very end of the Second Intermediate Period (1650-1550 BC), and was the predecessor of Sequenenra Taa II; his name had been recorded in Egyptology books as Senakht-en-Ra Taa I. This has now been proved to be incorrect, and many books are in need of revision. ...

... [On Page 26 :] ... The high quality limestone from which these blocks are carved may have come from Tura far to the north, or from nearer quarries at Gebelein. It is this doorjamb and the lintel that bear the names of the elusive Seventeeth Dynasty pharaoh Senakht-en-Ra, who had the Horus name Mery-Maat. However the other cartouche of the pharaoh on the door-jamb, his birth name, has been a great surprise (see left). It clearly reads Ahmose, not Taa. ...

Greetings, Lutz.
