Abstract

The epigraphic and ceramic evidence from Tomb B1 at Abydos is re-examined, yielding a date for the tomb of the reign of Narmer. The identity of the owner of B1 as a king is refuted; the group of signs previously identified as the name of a king *Iry-Hor is reinterpreted as a mark of the royal treasury.
