Neferkamin Anu

 Dynasty VIII

The name Seneferka Anu is found on the Abydos king list number 52, which translates to the odd the one whom a ka has made perfect, Anu. The sign emblem for the god Min, R22 (mn) and O34 (s) are very similar, and a small mistake by a scribe confusing "Min" with "S" is easily understood. Exchanging the signs makes the name Neferkamin Anu, which gives the more fitting translation of the perfect one of the ka of Min, Anu. The corresponding name in the Turin papyrus contains only the name Nefer.
