Djedkara Isesi

Also known as: Djedkare Isesi
Dynasty V

Djedkara Isesi is present on all four king lists of the New Kingdom, albeit with different names on each. They are, in chronological order: Karnak (5) has Issi, Abydos (32) has Djedkara, the Turin papyrus (4.24) has Djedu, and Saqqara (28) has Maatkara. The discrepancies are likely due to errors by the Ramesside scribes. He is also present on Manetho's king list as Tankheres which is the Greek transcription of Djedkara.
