Neferkahor was an ancient Egyptian pharaoh of the Eighth Dynasty during the First Intermediate Period.[1] According to egyptologists Jürgen von Beckerath and Darrell Baker, he was the eleventh king of this dynasty.[2][1] His name is attested on the Abydos King List (number 50) and on a black steatite cylinder seal of unknown provenance.[3] His name is absent from the Turin canon, a lacuna affecting the 7th/8th dynasty where his name would have been listed.
