Thank You Glyph :up Ah finally, but Not a mummy, just a skeleton, but canopic jars are found...
I wonder what happened there ?

This guy, Seneb-Kay only gets a wooden sarcophagus in 1650, and they couldn't be bothered mummifying him after taking out his organs and putting them into canopic jars.

Yet that King Sobekhotep 1763 ( 113 years earlier ? ) gets a 60 tonne lump of stone all the way from Cairo.. But, we don't have a body or inscriptions on the sarcophagus.. :tk
The burial sites don't really compare either, better and heavier stone in the King Sobekhotep tomb walls, made from the same stone from Cairo..

Those are the sort of things that I notice...

One to ponder..
There's a time for everyone, if they only learn

Well anything valuable (e.g. gold) would have been stolen long ago. Of course, it's not so easy to make off with a 60 ton sarcophagus.

So with the discovery of a new king wouldn't that change many of the dates of reigns around and after this period.

It is likely that this king may be the Sebkay mentioned by MacIver and Mace in el Ahram, 1899-1901. The difference is the wavy letter 'n'. I have examined both cartouches, and they are very similar.

Aah Abydos what home used to be. I wonder if they could find the palace that stood tall on a hill looking into the city. I bet they can and I bet that palace dates back to this time too and reused by later pharoahs well minus the Amarna Dynasty.

It would have been contempary with 15th and 16th Dynasties [about 1600 - 1650 BCE] (ie; concurrent with the Hyksos Dynasties which ruled in the delta)
