Sekhemib

 Dynasty II

The first pharaoh to add an epithet within the serekh of the Horus name, which was not included in the earlier version of the name. His tomb has not been found. The identity of Sekhemib has given rise to several theories, and the question has still not been solved by Egyptologists.
