Pharaoh. A son of Ramses VI, he was the sixth pharaoh of the 20th dynasty, reigning from about 1137 BC to about 1130 BC. Scholars agree that his reign lasted from between 6 years and 10 months and 7 years and 5 months. During his reign, Egypt experienced a period of steep inflation, grain prices apparently climbed to triple their former levels. Any public works accomplished in his short reign were minimal. A remarkably small tomb was excavated for him at the entrance to the Valley of the Kings at Thebes, now designated KV1. Unusually; the sarcophagus was cut directly into the floor of the tomb, and a massive stone covering was placed over it, but the mummy was missing, nor has it yet been identified. Four faience cups bearing the pharaoh's name were found near the Deir el-Bahri mummy cache and may suggest his is one of the unidentified within that find.
