Hor in Egyptian also
Awibre, Aubrire
c. 1760 BC Reign: c. 11 months
Pharaoh Hor, probably from the early thirteenth dynasty, was a quite insignificant ruler whose throne name is shown within a cartouche right. The photo is of a wooden statue of him, which today in the Egyptian Museum.
The Canon of Turin is fragment- ary in this section, and gives him seven months of rule and this would have happened around the year 1760 BC.
This correspond very well to the archaeological remains since he didn't have time to build a tomb of his own, and was buried in an old minor one. His fame comes from the lucky find of this very tomb placed just beside the pyramid of Amnemhet III at Dahshur.     (photo left: Jon Bodsworth)
