Egyptian Pharaoh. His name translates as "The Soul Appears" and he ruled Egypt as the fourth king of the Third Dynasty. He reigned from 2643 BC until 2649 BC and sealings found at Hierakonpolis and Elephantine are taken as evidence that his power extended into Southern Egypt. He is best known as being the probable builder of the so-called "Layer Pyramid", a distinctive tomb that represents an unfinished step pyramid. Evidence that this is his burial site comes from inscriptions on stone bowls discovered nearby. (bio by: js)
