Dynasty III

The name Mesochris was according to Africanus, the fourth king of Manetho's third dynasty. No hieroglyphic name is know or can easily be connected to this king. Another possibility is that the third dynasty could inadvertedly have been mixed together with the fourth dynasty, and Mesochris could be a variant of king Menkaura, also known as Mycerinus.
