Huni

 Dynasty III

Huni is missing from the Abydos king list, unless Neferkara (no. 19) which precedes Sneferu is a mistake and should be Huni. The Turin papyrus shows that Huni was Sneferu's predecessor, while the Saqqara king list actually holds Huni's name. Huni was the first pharaoh to use a cartouche for his name.
