Egyptian Pharaoh. He is thought to have reigned from about 3150 BC, and is regarded as the first ruler of a unified ancient Egypt. Evidence for this comes from a palette and mace head bearing his name, which shows him wearing both the white crown of Upper Egypt and the red crown of Lower Egypt and standing over the dead bodies of his conquered enemies. His influence spread as far as Palestine, as confirmed by the discovery there of pottery shards bearing his name. On his death he was buried in a two chambered tomb near Abydos, in what was to become the burial ground of the early Pharaohs.
