Ammu Aahotepre

'Ammu Aahotepre was a pharaoh of the 14th Dynasty who ruled over parts of Egypt during the Second Intermediate Period.[4][1] His reign is believed to have lasted about 15 years, from 1760 BC until 1745 BC.[5]


Like other kings of the dynasty, scarab seals are the only surviving evidence for his reign. 'Ammu Aahotepre has 61 seals bearing his name: 30 for the nomen 'Ammu and 31 for the prenomen Aahotepre.[5]

A scarab bearing the nomen of this king was discovered in Tell el-Ajjul, Gaza Strip and catalogued by Flinders Petrie in 1933.[6]


Ryholt (1997) identified king 'Ammu with Aahotepre in his reconstruction of the Turin canon.[1] Von Beckerath (1964) had previously assigned the prenomen Aahotepre to a pharaoh of the Sixteenth dynasty of Egypt.[7]
