Neferkare Khendu

Impression of a Levantine cylinder seal bearing an ancient Egyptian royal name. Once tentatively readed "Khondy" and attributed to a king of the Second Intermediate Period, it was also attributed to Neferkare Khendu of the First Intermediate Period and, in more recent times, to the last of the Hyksos kings, Khamudi. Today is likely that the cartouche contains some "space-filler hieroglyphs" and that the cylinder is datable to the late Middle Kingdom and that it cames from Byblos. Green jasper, 18th-17th century BCE, now in the Petrie Museum (UC 11616).
