Egyptian Pharaoh. He was a ruler of Egypt during the Fifth Dynasty, reigning for eight years from his accession in 2422 BC. His chief historical significance is that he was the last Pharaoh to build a sun temple, but he is also known from an important quarry inscription in the Sinai Dessert and from a number of fine relief carvings. When he died in 2414 BC he was buried in the so-called "Headless Pyramid" which was discovered by Richard Lepsius in 1842, only to be lost again until its rediscovery in 2008.
