Bebiankh

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Seuserenre Bebiankh was a native Ancient Egyptian king of the 16th Theban Dynasty during the Second Intermediate Period and, according to Kim Ryholt, the successor of king Semenre. He is assigned a reign of 12 years in the Turin Canon (11.8).[1]
Bebiankh was succeeded either by a poorly known king named Sekhemre Shedwast or by the equally shadowy ruler Seneferankhre Pepi III.[2]

Attestations

Bebiankh is principally known by a stela[3] found at Gebel Zeit that attests to mining activity conducted in this area by the Red Sea during his reign and preserves his royal names Seuserenre and Bebiankh.[4] This modest stela records this king's activities in the Gebel Zeit galena mines.[5] He is also known to have built an extension to the Temple of Medamud.[6] Bebiankh's nomen was also found on a bronze dagger found in Naqada and now in the British Museum, under the catalog number BM EA 66062.[1]
