Senedj

Also known as: Sened Dynasty II

The Horus name of Senedj is unknown. The earliest source of the name dates from the tomb of the High priest Shery from the fourth dynasty, where it is written in a cartouche, which was not yet in use during the second dynasty. The New Kingdom king lists all use the same name, but with different hieroglyphs.
