Khasekhemwy

Also known as: Khasekhemui
Dynasty II

The Horus name Khasekhem is the only one that appears with the falcon, the other two variants both appear with the falcon and the Seth-animal. The New Kingdom king lists have different names, which probably disagree because the scribes misinterpreted the similar signs in the unknown sources.
