Elementary studies on the skeleton of SenebKay that was discovered in Abydos last year by the Mission of University of Pennsylvania directed by Dr. Josef Wegner showed 18 injuries on the King's bones as well as vertical cuts in feet, ankles and the lower back beside many injuries on the skull which indicated that the King died in a battle at age between 35 to 49 years old.

The article seems to indicate that SenebKay was killed in battle most likely with the Hyksos. They also suggest that he was riding a horse when he was attacked. His bones show signs of the sort of muscle development you get when you ride frequently.
