Mentuhotep III

Also known as: Montuhotep III
Dynasty XI

The ankh sign in Mentuhotep III's throne name S-ankh-ka-ra might have been erroneously inscribed as the similar looking nefer on the Karnak king list. This would explain pharaoh Sneferkara is sitting just behind Mentuhotep II instead of Sankhkara.
