Neferkamin I

Also known as: Seneferka Dynasty VIII

Neferkamin I is found on the Abydos king list number 47, while the Turin papyrus has a notation of a lacuna where the name would have been found. His name might have been Neferkamin, but Seneferka can't be excluded. The Ramesside scribes probably misread the Min emblem (Gardiner R22) as the very similar looking s (Gardiner S29).
